Chris288, I think I was the only Ilmor powered Velocity in the NYC Poker Run. We had a wonderful time and will be back this year. The Ilmors are fantastic engines and bullet proof. As mentioned Ilmor is second to none in the customer service department. I too will probably upgrade next year with the release of the next stage of power that is expected to be in the 700 to 725 range. And as usual I am sure until the testing is done to insure reliable power, we will not know what power that will be. Something to keep in mind for you changing out the 525's to Ilmors, you will most likely gain about about an inch in the way the boat sets in the water with the 700 lbs of removed weight. It is like getting a 1" shorty for free. Also, not to mention the added speed. Also I think you will get better or at least the same fuel economy that you now have with the 525's at least from my experience.
Good Luck with a great choice

Steet, what size is your velocity and what kind of speeds are you seeing?
How does that compare to the same boats with 525's?

Yea, he called today. I'm probably going to take the boat up there next week. He seems like he is really sharp on rigging.

Btw, he said something about "Tell Jeff to give you a great deal on those Herring Props because that's probably the size you'll need"

I was quoted $35K per engine by some dealers - the lowest I found was $32,500 from a dealer. I got a great deal on these because I bought them directly from Ilmor and they don't have the BLING look of the new 6265s. They have the internals and that is what I was concerned with.

I figure if they release an updated version next year that are putting out 700+ hp then I"ll send then back for the update and have them dressed up then.

I think Bob had mentioned your place when I was thinking about buying Ilmors back in the fall. Have you done many installs on the Ilmors?
