Years ago, I went to Amel to visit and sail the prototype 54 on the far side of the marina in La Rochelle while they were still delivering the 53's
When I discussed discussed the engine, i was not happy with the Volvo "electronic" engine.
They said being that the boat was for export and the USA pollution regulations were not yet in place they could do it for a fee.
Unfortunately I thought I had health issues and did not order hull number 12.
It seems like the has a lot of problems.
I recall when I asked if i bought a spare electronics module and the Volvo engine still did not work what could i do?
They said just hook up the engine to the internet--that was the Volvo deal breaker for me.

Great points. The elbow is very clean. But I have not looked beyond it. I will when we remove the engine.
Excuse the errors.

Black smoke is caused by unburnt carbon....oil burning is blue smoke.
Unburnt carbon usually indicates there is a blockage somewhere
Airfilter..you checked that
Injectors..you've done that.
Another thing could be too high back pressure in the exhaust.
Has the exhaust system been taken apart and checked to be sure it is relatively clean and free flowing?
