Jim do you know where they are working on this at? My cousin is a pretty high up at the Marysville, Ohio plant.

I've been hearing some rumors too. Honda's have always been an excellent engine. It'll be interesting where they take this.

I read somewhere earlier this year that the engineering for their Indy engines actually came out of Ilmor. Not sure how accurate it was, and can no longer remember where I read it.
