DEAN GELLNER Dean is known for building some nice 540 800hp race motors with lots of hours on them and has real nice pricing on the 540 650 to 700 hp motors.

Going on 5 seasons with my Teague 800's. Zero problems. I would do all over again.

Will do. I expect to seal the deal on sunday, and get the boat home.

The Ilmor idea would be cool. But as I have stated in the thread on the fountain forum, money is, unfortunatly, an object But as things often goes for performance boating, I probably end up diggin' deep in the wallet and do it the fun way.
