Default New 430hp 502 Mercruiser out yet?

Has anyone seen one of these new engines come thru in a new boat yet?

I would love to hear anyone's experience.

I have a pair showing up tomorrow or Wednesday. I will give you the down-low when I see them. We already are working on ideas on how to dress them up for the dance.

First time rig is always so much fun!

Our first set of motors will be coming in this week as well. We have a 288 and a 32 both getting the new 502ís. One thing is for sure, Matt Millerís 32 will be one of the first hopped up motors, currently not sure what is available but I know he is doing some research!!
