The North American Die Casting Association has named Mercury Marine’s V-8 engine block the winner of the Aluminum – Over 10lb category for the 2018 Die Casting Competition.

The judges recognized the simpler design of the 4.6-liter block that allows for more displacement. The award will be featured in the upcoming Die Cast Engineer Magazine and 2018 NADCA Congress and Expo this fall.

“We are honored to win this award from NADCA,” said Mike Meyer, Mercury Marine general manager of castings, in a statement. “Our V-8 and V-6 outboard production has been very well received in the marketplace. We take great pride in our casting processes and this award is the culmination of a lot of hard work and effort by our entire team.”
