Re: Volvo Penta D1-30 & D2-40 Engine Recall

Unfortunately, I bet we will see a lot more of this in the future. Others are marinizing engines that the manufacturer can't meet emissions standards at the higher RPM levels but the marinizers claim they can. I don't believe it. Kubota reduces output by lowering the max RPM's and creating higher usable torque at lower RPM's. The EPA standards a less stringent at less than 19kw output and that's why they operate just under that. A fixed timing engine just can't meet the EPA standards over a wider RPM range.
