konrad is doing it with the ace package tran in the box and comes with steering and shortie drive thats what I bought for for a single set up 1050hp should be fine. they are rated at 800hp but have seen more power added and are doing fine in light singles. and have seen twin 800s run fine.

this is great cause it will probably force Merc to make available the NXT drive on the reamaining line...it would be nice to get a 496HO or the 525 with NXT drive..peace of mind and much better than those bravo's..

Any idea on the coast of the Ilmor drive - and can you get it in Black?

And do they have a final retail price on the Xpower drive?

When it is time to buy my next boat in the near future, I will definitely plan on the Ilmor package. I have had both the 550 and the 625 package and loved it. The new 725 package with the new drive is awesome. No question as to whom I would call. Ilmor was fantastic to deal with and customer satisfaction was number 1
