For us that are Mopar fanatics, seeing that and the Hemi Dustin just put Whipples on, kinda brings a tear to my eye. All I can say is that thing looks "Great" .

Good Luck with the boat, and the season.

If F1 works out, maybe you guys could put a couple in the 35 and try F2.

WOW ,Cool motor ! Nice to someone else stepping in .

Anyone here anymore about the Ford project ? I think it was with Sterlings help ?

Nothing like a little competition to drive the prices down to almost affordable !

At about 8 litres I still prefer a V8 engine. If it were a 72 deg v10 even fire engine than everything changes even at 8 litres. Good luck Pantera. Any V10 Guru's that can give us some more info on the engine? Ironman.

Hey Cobra Marty,

The reps. just left now till the morning but they told me earlier they have two versions of the motor now.One has 480 HP and trhe other has 525 HP at 5600 RPM.At 3,750 RPM the motor makes 711 ft.pounds of torque.this is what I am most excited about.The motor weighs approximately 600 pounds and comes ready to bolt on to a bravo 1 set up.

I will be running the motor with either an XR or an XZ bravo 1 drive.Our first race with this package will most likely be Marathon,in May or Ft. Myers in June.
We will be doing testing with props and setup thru out the year to get the most out of it.I want to put the motor thru its paces in rough water.This is the information they want to know.
They have Dynoed the motors extensively for many hours in France.

Regards, JO
