    Any Volvo Penta outdrive guys???

    My dad is looking at a boat in Oklahoma. Its a 2001 Crownline with a Volvo Penta 5.0Gi and SX outdrive. The ad does not state that the engine is EFI or carbed. I did a little searching on the Volvo Penta website and from what I can tell that engine is TBI/EFI. We are trying to confirm for sure but the salesman is being less than helpful and I think the he is off his rocker anyway. Are there any of you guys that might be able to help me with this at all? Possibly be able to tell by engine model without having to drive all the way to OK to take the engine cover off and see if the engine is EFI or not?

    2001 should be TB EFI motor and GM based small block chevy. Very reliable and widely used setup, have serviced many of these motors and some have several thousand hours. With any marine app it must be maintained.

    Thanks guys. I was almost 99% sure it was EFI. But I finally got the salesman to go take a look. It is in fact a TBI motor. I was just glad I could throw that whole bit about him being wrong right back in his face.
