Dual Cal 1350/1100

Mercury Racing extends its state-of-the-art dual fuel calibration technology to the popular 1350 sterndrive.

Power output is controlled via interchangeable electronic key fobs at the dash. The engine pumps out its advertised one thousand three hundred and fifty horsepower on 91 octane fuel when the 1350 horsepower fob is engaged. Engaging the 1100 horsepower fob reduces the octane requirement to 89 or rec 90 to allow operation in areas where premium fuel availability is unknown.

Consumers are responsible for making sure they have the correct fuel grade in their tank when running in 1350 mode. Both fuel calibrations provide maximum torque and efficiency and are designed to optimize engine performance at each power level.

  • Dual Calibration

    Dual engine calibrations provide two power options: 1350 h.p. @ 91 octane (98 RON) pump fuel and 1100 h.p. @ 89 octane (95 RON) or Rec 90 pump fuel

  • Durable

    Twin turbocharged, 9.0 liter engine features Mercury Racing’s exclusive aluminum four valve cylinder heads and dual overhead camshaft valve train for unsurpassed durability

  • Drivable

    Mercury Digital Throttle & Shift (DTS) technology provides instant throttle response and luxury-car-like drivability

  • Robust

    Robust hydraulic transmission and dry-sump M8 drive to handle the 1350’s high torque

  • Factory Refresh

    Available Factory Refresh includes a complete inspection and refresh of the engine by the same technicians…the experts – who built it originally
