Pics? When are they going to get their website up and running, and updated?

Mike, I'd put my money on Marine Power before Merc. Not saying anything bad about Merc other than their prices. Most/all of what Marine Power uses is the same as Merc.

We buy all of our Tige wakeboard boats with Marine Power small blocks.Trouble free,and MP is great to deal with. They are a relatively small company (compared to Mercruiser)with excellent customer service,I am very comfortable dealing with them.

I just reviewed their website and found this 611HP 502. Well, with the parts/combination that they have listed------Hmmmmmmm. Do I believe them? No. The dyno view does not work. Would like to see the "numbers".
