There's some serious money in race engines? 130K. I know it takes alot of testing, research and development but that seems crazy.. X 2 260,000.00 + tax = 275,600.00 for only engines? They should throw in the drives for free! ++ the need to rebuild every 100-150 hours or less.

I think I will go with diesels or turbines when ready to take that step in power.

That price is for both the M8 drive and engine, since you can only buy them in a package.

A single M8 or Sterling package in a 23' open-bow would be awesome!!
