I thought the whole thing with the Merc package is 200 hour usage between services. That's worth a lot more to most people than an extra 350hp and 20 hour service intervals. Plus the M8 drive is designed to handle the extra torque of that new motor. . .

I'm interested to see the pricing on them if they are going to be a lot less then Mercs. I wonder if they will have the same warranty as Merc or the normal waranty of a big HP motor?

Look for a post-dyno update on this engine next week.
Next time you talk to Mike ask him what he's going to do with the 860ci V12 Torque Marine blocks he has.

I believe Bob's new boat is using BPM surface drives - not the #6's. Accordingly, there shouldn't be any drive problems associated with the increased horsepower.

The fist thing I was thinking was how perfect these motors would be mated to some Arnesons. Forget the #6's.
