    Jet ski engines

    From what I understand there is a heat exchanger so no salt water is drawn into the cooling system and not all watercraft engines were forced induction. The power to weight ratio is attractive with the 2 strokers being lightest. The constant revs of the watercraft is similar to aircraft usage. Peter
