Default Ilmor to power MasterCraft

Just returned from a waterski meeting in Atlanta. Heard good things about new Ilmor powered mastercraft. It shaved a bunch of time off of their 0 to 36 mph. time. My Nautique goes 0 to 34 in 144 ft. not hot top speed but still quick and I need every bit of it in my small ski lake. They are marinizing GM engines.....Interesting.....

They have a few things in the pipeline yet to be released from small to big. If ILMOR commits to doing something they will only do it 100%. No shortcuts!

Cool! I wouldnt want to be on the end of the rope when they punch that one out of the hole though...

bad enough as it is behind a 310hp prostar.

Dont forget Penske is behind the whole deal (Mastercraft & Ilmor) and he is a real stickler for details. He is one of very few guys I respect in business and life.

Ilmor High-Performance will remain in Plymouth. Nothing in the near future says we will be in NC. I'd love to work out of that big ol facility! Shes a beauty...........
