Along with the sound the speed needs changed. Those things were damn fast. Found this. The Packard 4M-2500 engine was utilized in all U.S. Navy World War II PT boats. This engine was based on the 1925 Liberty aircraft engine which was earlier converted for marine use in racing boats. During the war the Packard engine went through various performance updates and modifications. With early engines rated at 1100 h.p. and progressing to 1500 h.p. during the war. The Packard 4M-2500 engine was a supercharged, water cooled, gasoline powered V-12 engine, weighing approximately 2900 pounds. The Packard 4M-2500 marine engine was not the Rolls-Royce Merlin, nor did U.S. Navy PT boats use the R.R. Merlin engines, which is sometimes misstated. However, Packard did built a version of Merlin Engine under contract by Britain for British aircraft use. p2p8-engine-02.jpgPackard 4M-2500, Super Charged V-12 Gasoline Marine Engine p2p8-engine-01.jpg The Packard 4M- 2500 - PT Boat Engine Cylinders:12 - V angled arrangementSupercharger:Gear driven - centrifugalCooling: Fresh waterMaximum RPM:2400 rpm, 2000 rpm sustainedRating:1200, 1350, 1500 depending on year of manufacturingFuel:100 Octane gasolineFuel Consumption at 40 knots:Top speed at 40 knots, running three engines, 474 gallons per hour.
