Refinements developed by its racing division are the impetus for Mercury's newest outboard, the Verado 350 SCi. This 2.6-liter supercharged four-stroke engine features electronically controlled multi-port fuel injection, a double overhead cam design and electronic boost bypass control. The new top cowling delivers fresh air to intakes on the top and front of the engine for constant cooling. Another air scoop channels air to the supercharger. To handle the additional torque and horsepower, the gear case and Advanced MidSection drive shaft housing uses heavy-duty components. The 350 SCi comes standard with SmartStart automatic starting, electro-hydraulic power steering and SmartCraft Digital Throttle and Shift.
