I say the 30. But just because you get the #6 roostertails.

And knowing you - that is 2' less that you have to buff to a high gloss with a diaper everytime that you take it out.

The current spec fuel system has a return line and has corrected the vapor lock issue. I have not heard of any issues.

48gph at WOT
6300 redline- 710

Stainless is correct.

The 30 is almost 10mph faster than the 32. The plan would be to upfit the new Ilmor drives upon release promoting a complete Ilmor pkg.

I'll keep that in mind since I've already made 2 trips to LCM in the past 6 weeks!

I have had the 550's and now the 625's and can assure you they are one of the best engines on the market today. I was a diehard Merc fan until I had the ilmors. I got extremely good customer service from Ilmor and only had one problem which they flew Ian down to my house, on my dock, and fixed the problem, which was an idle solenoid. Lets see a mec tech come to your house. Not knocking any techs, but I know their answer would be bring in the boat for a check up. I now have 3 Ilmor service centers within a 30 min drive.
As for fuel economy, merc is not in the ball game. You can ask anyone that boats in our club what kind of fuel mileage I get. On long trips I will get equivalent fuel mileage of the 496 merc package in nearly the same boat and weight. As for the 700 mer vs. the 700 Ilmor, I undestand the Ilmor is about 40% more fuel eff. than the merc.
Rebuilds? Merc 200 to 300 hrs depending on how hard you drive. Ilmor 350 to 500 hrs. depending on how hard you drive. New drives, they are testing drives now and hope to have them out by the end of the year. If they are as good as their motor package, I will own them also
Any one want to talk about specifics, call me at 704-239-1410
