Heard from a good source that a new Illmor is being produced in the 700-800hp range. just wondered if anyone knew anything about it and when it might become aavailable.

I heard it will be the new Mercedes Benz M275 engine, which is a twin turbo v12 used in the new AMG Mercedes cars,

Mark has talked me into the poker run, actually never been on the great lakes. looking forward to it, cant decide if I should bring the 50v or the 36 supercat. What do you guys know about the new Illmor, looking at putting a set or 2 in some Nortech's. plus can run without mufflers , what a relief. look forward to seeing you guys and then you guys come to the shootout in august. thanks jim

I will tell Neil to PM you.

You will love the great lakes, will you be able to stay a while, boating on the MI side is a bit different more Harbor towns.
But you can't beat down town Chicago, after the PR Mr P and I plan on getting a slip in one of the down town Marinas. If you cross over between the two states you can run a distance without seeing another boat, I am assuming that it quite differnt from LOTO. Look forward to meeting you.

Must be hard having to make a choice like that

The whole crew from Ilmor will be attending the Chicago Poker Run. There will be an incredible mixture of exotic motors such as Ilmor in a MTI and the owner's own 38 Eliminator, Lamborgini V-12, Racecrafters 2000hp motors, and I am still working on some turbines.

I already talked with Neal from Ilmor and he is willing to help in anyway.
