  • 07 X Star with LQ-9 6.0 questions

    I'm looking at trading in my 08 x-35 for a 07 X Star with the LQ-9 6.0. I did some searching on the LQ-9 motor and found a little infor from some people. I would like to hear from anyone here with a Star with the LQ-9 and loaded down. How does your boat get out of the water? Did you change your prop out? Does any one have any real complaints on the LQ-9. I'm still on the fence if this is what I want to do or keep looking for something different. Thanks for any info

      LY6 I think.... snork is right, prop choice is going to be key in getting any x-star loaded down with lots of ballast out on plane.

          Yeah they have it listed as a LQ-9. I sent a message to the sales guy at the dealership to make sure what motor. I'm not sure on years and motors. Thanks for the info.

            I got a reply back and they are telling me it is a LQ-9. Here is the link to the boat

              Hmm.. if its a Cadillac, I wonder if its the supercharged large block. Maybe the motor was replaced at some point?

                I have no input on the motor, but that is a beautiful boat. It's a shame they used the bow for brail-docking. Get that guy some curb finders!

                    Every thing I have searched shows 07 to have the MCX 350 or the LY6. So that's why I wanted to ask here to see what I could find out.

                      That's an LY6! The cowling on top of the LQ9 has the caddy emblem and is shaped different. LY6 is a sweet package!

                          watch out for salt use on a boat down there

                          you'll love the hydraulic steering

                          need those tower braces installed

                          that engine and trailer look fishy to me...

                            This is correct!! That engine is a LY6 not a LQ9. Disappointing a MC dealer wouldn't know the difference. MC discontinued the LQ9 after the 2005 model year.

                            Ask the dealer if the engine is closed cooling. If they say no then it is a LY6. All LQ9's were closed cooling. Actually if they do say it is closed cooling then the engine would be the Crusader SS 6.0L but that engine in the pic is not blue.

                              Thanks for all the feedback everyone. I'm going to look at it in person this weekend and figure out if I'm going to do the deal or wait for something different. I like the 07 for the garage set up my digital dash in my x-35 freaks out way to much. I have also talked them into fixing the front of the boat in the deal.
