I bet the number is not huge. Takes well over a hundred hours to hand-assemble these things.

The number definitely isn't a huge, though I don't know exactly what it is. I do know that several pairs are going to MTI, which if I'm not mistaken has ordered the most.

A few months ago, Fred K. told me that Mercury Racing could ramp up to building 300 a year, if the demand was there. He was quick to add that he didn't see the demand going there soon.

I also think you're dead right in the number of hours it takes to assemble this engine.

Thumbs up

you could get into PPS turbines and Arneson #8 drives for less money = longer lasting package more power lighter set up. and I know a guy that installs them. turbines can be 1475hp or 1800hp.
