Smile MAGNUM & ILMOR JOIN FORCES

After carefull study, I have decided to re-power my 76 27' Magnum with the ILMOR MV10-625. Until recently, I never thought it would fit without raising the rear deck or making other modifications. But it fits perfectly, and is actualy not as high or as wide as the 525 EFI. And besides that, it's 300# lighter. You can't beat their one-year warranty either. If your motor goes sour, they'll ship you a brand new one within 24 hours at no cost. I haven't seen the fine print yet, but it sounds pretty good to me. If any members have an ILMOR, I'd really appreciate your comments. I'm not familiar with their PLATINUM drive package, and could use some advice on that, versus the ARNESON SD that I originally planned to use with the 525. With the additional 100 HP, I just might break 100 MPH, that's my goal. Michel, at ILMOR has just been fantatic with my requests for details, not like Mercurys people. They sent me everything I asked for, and more. And I did't have to wait days for it, it was within hours. I want to thank all OSO members for all your advice and comments, especially RHC, 375 STINGER and 24DEGREES. And 24DEGREES, I'll be sending you pictures soon. Tony

Are you saying that Ilmor requires you to purchase the motor and Platinum drive as a package only, you cant just purchase the engine ?

If not, I'd stick with the ASD to keep the boat completely bulletproof.

Isn't Ilmor hooked up with Teague for the outdrive?

They'll sell the engine separate. I'm still planning on using the Arneson, but I'd like to know more about the Platinum drive just for my own knowledge. They're not pushing their drive, but they did give me a good price on a package deal and a price on their drive separately.

I'm not sure about their relationship with Teague, but I think you're right.

I think I read an article in Hotboat on the Ilmor/teague platinum drive package, is it a years warranty on the drive also?

If there's a will, there's a way. All I can do is try. With only one engine and drive, I'm saving about 900# and the 300# lighter Ilmor. I think I'll get close.

I'm not sure about the drive warranty yet. ILMOR is puting all the information together as we speak.
