Mine is plugged in with the pin harness. Added a couple mechanical guages also.
My setup has remote filter mounts located on a stringer, making oil changes a breeze.

[They are CV Products billet mounts that take large 1qt Oil Filters but I'm sure there are other options.

Granted I live in Mich but are there any other service locations other than the factory in plymouth?

We have a few different option besides the Plymouth factory. Off the top of my head is:
Great Lakes Marine - Port Huron
JimKid Motorsports - Redford
Precision Power - Grand Haven
If you purchase ILMOR stuff, we'll train a technician in your area to be certified

How much longer is this engine compared to a 496 HO?

Who can work on these?
Front mounting location is a bit different. Roughly 4 inches in overall length and we have extension looms because the "merc" connector is on opposite sides. And tailpipes, if they are stainless. Rubber ones should be ok.
A few people on OSO have re-powered to V-10's

All multi hour tows from Charlevoix / Boyne area! Not something U want 2 do in the middle of summer if it crops up! Short summers, time/effort involved!

Is the training on your dime & say it's a person from a local dealer, R U gunna pay them 4 there time training cuz I am sure a local dealer will not pay 4 that or their time off!! I'm sure they could not justify it cuz not many Ilmors around!!! Or would Ilmor (if new product was ordered) SIGN a promisary note they would send somebody 2 our neck of the woods if there were probs?? Pass this by Ian!!

I keep my boat on Cumberland which is very remote and Ilmor trained a dealership to service we very few V-10 owners on our lake in the middle of rural KY.

What is your service center of choice? Or what is THE place to go to near you?

FYI- Ian flew to NC several years back to look at a pair of 625's I had in my previous Spectre at no charge to me. I didn't have it in writing but the bottom line is they stand behind their product. I wanna believe the training is cheap like $800. If a repair shop can't make that back in a reasonable amount of time that's a problem. Granted I wouldn't expect them to do so for just one customer.
