Yes I was; doing the work I am paid to do. If I'm paying to have you build my engine, then why.... Oh - never mind.

More shots of the business end. The transmission is a driveshaft-style unit used for dyno testing. Mine will use a plug-in style. The transmission is a hydraulically-actuated dry sump design that uses clutch plates rather than a cone clutch, so shifting should be quite smooth. Parasitic power loss in the transmission is almost non-existent.

The engine and transmission are true fly-by-wire designs. Since my boat already has mechanical cable controls, we'll be using the cables to actuate the throttle and shift electronics. Ideally, I'd like to eventually switch over to full electronic controls and delete the cables.

The previously-mentioned rear engine mount is clearly visible in this shot, along with the engine/transmission controller. This box has full OBD-M diagnostics and logging, and is capable of driving any NMEA2000-compatible display, like the latest chartplotters and multifunction displays. You have a lot of engine information right at your fingertips with this package.

Here's Ilmor's really cool fixture for drilling and cutting the transom. It's got eight 14mm hardened drill bushings for drilling the mounting stud holes, and four 1/4" bushings to drill the pilot holes for the holesaws used on the corners of the cut-out itself. It also has slots to enable you to see your centerline, crankshaft height and the actual cut-out pattern itself. There are six small holes to screw it to the transom and hold it in place. Those screw are inside the actual cutout, so there are no holes to patch when you're done. What a time-saver.

Taking the time to create a jig / fixture guarantees install consistency & accuracy! Not surprised at all that Ilmor has taken the steps to insure such, it's simply the Ilmor way a company that is light years ahead of those who supply paper templates or use a transom assy to mark the holes!

Wow,

The attention to detail is definately a step above anything else on the market. I really like the Ilmore stuff... too bad they do not yet offer anything in the higher horsepower market.
