Perkins has been making this engine for quite sometime and have a good track record. No repetitive problems known. As far as upping the horsepower, it would have to be aftermarket, and any change of larger turbo and upped fuel will shorten the life of the engine. As a TA, it has already been boosted as far as Perkins feels it is safe ad still give good service. There are marine performance experts that will boost it, but for horsepower increase, be prepared to pay for it! What engines do you have now?
