At this point I would have to agree with Matt! No reason for Fred, Mercury or its people to deceive and misrepresent. They have always been for the most part truthful, honest and forthcoming.
I suspect also that this engine got a good thrashing by Mercury at their test site and time will show if the magic is in the engine!
The real qustion now is can enough big buck users step up to the cost of this beauty and as such, can Mercury keep it in production at small usage numbers?
As I have always said "Nothing is Impossible, It Just Costs More!!"
