SS930, you are terribly misinformed. I am not with Ateco. Simply a customer and investor. Vettesteve has failed to mention how he everheated his engine to the point it melted the heat tabs. His story is a very long one and I will not go into it here. Let's say there is always two sides to every story. And some people love to go after the negative. Unless you know facts better off to stay quiet rather than be a keyboard jockey. Not one person has ever complained his Ateco engine did not make the advertised power. NOT ONE. Anything high performance is prone to problems and most are directly attributable to rigging or driver error. Good parts fail when abused. Many people do not want to take responsiblilty for thier actions and look to blame someone else. I have seen so many poorly rigged boats with small fuel lines, low fuel delivery, dirty injectors or carbs, bad gas, and poor cooling systems it is a wonder why more engines do not fail no matter who built it. Marine engines are always under load and take a lot of abuse. We do not drive a 700 hp gas engine spinning 6000 rpm in a truck pulling a 10000 lb trailer WOT up a moutain for hours on end do we? Yet many boat owners do just that to their marine engine.
Bill at Ateco has sold many engines all over the country and Europe.
