Is it offered for tight clearance applications?
I was thinking the same thing. What about it John...or Bob.

Absolutely correct Matt, its a very big deal & hugely expensive.

Only a very few independents will be able to pull this off.

Teague is just the distributor for this tranny. Velvet drive built it for Merc. It is the same tranny that goes with the Merc 1350.
They are also lighter than the Bam and Hubers do to having Aluminum cases.
Very nice pieces, shift is a little more solid feeling than the others also. I have been running these since last yr. What little I boated that is last yr.

Who does the actual certification? The state of California, and independent agency, or the engine builder?

The testing is at a state level with the California air resources board - or C.A.R.B.

These guys are nasty strict- to the point that we cant even buy regular fuel cans anymore- they all need big brother caps et all.

It's nice that it is rated for 2500 hp, but it is still only a single speed trans, what is needed is a multiple speed unit, and until then all you are going have to chose from is proping to small and being able to get up on plane and then bouncing of the rev limiter, or proping it for top end and barely being able to get on plane with passangers and a decent amount of fuel, until one is avilable in masses those six figure powerplants will never see there true potential.

My guess is they did the calibration work and certification at an independent test facility once they felt they were close on the cal. No totally up to speed on where the CARB marine standards are but typically the demands are for a certified facility to do the cert and equipment is different than whats needed for normal developement - AC dyno, emissions bench, EPA test cycles, etc. Very cool they got this done, congrats to the Teague team.

Just an FYI, CARB is a major PITA but keep in mind their standards (in one form or another) often go nationwide a short while after being implimented in cali.

Speaking of calibration work, be great to know who did the work - my $ is on Whipple but again just a guess.
