Hi Pat,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Volvo says their engine can deliver unto 4500 rpm. However, because power is not fully dependent on rpm but on torque, Amel decided to accept 3000 rpm as the normal maximum rpm. This is because the torque curve of the TDM22 is such that near full HP is available at that rpm.
My previous boat had a TDM22 as well and that was set to 4500 rpm… tou don’t want to do this… trust me!!!
Just ensure your TC is on full open for 1 hour every 10. Your engine will remain healthy with this small bit of Italian tune up!
