Wasn't there a board member a few years ago that swapped Illmores into his 38 Fountain? A search in the Fountain section would probably turn it up.

The Wilson's have a tie in with ILMOR so the boat was built with the drive and engine package. The drives that RiK sells are a great setup for a boat already built. Our boat was built just for the ASD 8's, it took several years to get it right.

Just curious, when is Ilmore going to step up with the power levels. At 700hp, a lot of the big boys wouldn't even give it a second look. Twin turbos on that lite motor package would be awfully interesting.

Arneson is for sure great for a race boat, but on a std boat that is used a lot is better (in my opinion) with regular outdrives. Much easier to dock, std props which wcan be ordered at ALL Merc suppliers world wide. Easier to "dial in" on a new boat/engine package (a lot more props to choose from), less vibrations in the boat, totally different thrust. Dont need extended swimplatform etc etc.

The Viper motors are also built stout as hell, in auto form can easily put down 1000+ rwhp and tq on normal pump gas, and way more on race gas. Some forced induction on these motors in a boat would be insane with their light weight and how much power they can hold.

You'd be surprised, the docking is no different, and there is less vibration not more. We use the standard Mercury propellers, nothing special. Length is basically the same as the Bravo so nothing different there also.

The car guys do make good power with blowers and turbos. Marine engines, as most of you know, spend ALOT of time flat out. These "car" combos dont like marine conditions.
