Default Imco Xtreme 1000?

Who is running or has experience with the Imco Extreme 1000's?
What is the cost for a pair?
I believe they offer an extended warranty, how much is it and is it worth it?

I am running a Teague Platinum on my Krypt now and have been happy with it. I am looking for some options for a twin Bravo boat I am looking at.

Thanks.

I run the Imco Xtreme Sc's on my Warlock (2x600's) and they have been great. I highly recommend their products. The SC 1000 came out after I upgraded mine. I believe it is the same drive with some more enhancements.

The 1000 is not a bravo type drive. All the shifting chores are done with a BAM transmission mounted in the extension box.

What are the Xtreme Sc's rated for?
Warranty?

Don't bother...... Warranty..bhwhahahah... They told me "what part of no warranty don't you understand."

I blew two in 20 hrs and threw in the towel (715 hp)... absolutely no customer support other than wanting me to pay $6k for a new upper....then I go to someone I know and get it cheaper..

They "say" 800 but don't believe the hype....

I bit the bullet and got BMax's. 1st year I had 715 hp, this year I have 830 hp and 120 hrs on these drives. All I've done is change the oil.

The imco extreme sc is just a bravo xr with lipstick (imco shafts and upper casing with extra bolts),if you plan on running any kind of real power and your boat is heavy they are barely a step better then a bravo xr. Now the sc1000's on the other hand (at 35,000$ per side) are supposed to be a built from scratch drive with alot of strength,haven't heard of anyone running them yet,Smitty

@ 35K a side, I'm putting on #6s or Arnesons!

I am looking for the best bolt on Bravo type drive. The boat I am looking at has Imco Ext. Boxes already & over 700hp. I know I would be dealling with 2 timebombs w/ the Xr's.
