IMCO has the same internals as an XR. It's essentially an XR drive in a different case. The IMCO SCX Extreme I thought was 23k new.

Ya , I agree the black imco does look great! gives the back of the boat a race look.... some of the imco drives aren't black, they are all like a silver/grey color, which looks nice too....

I guess you have the option to pick black or silver?

Thanks MC240, I was wondering how similar they were.. The IMCO sure is a great looking drive, Wow, thats alot of money.. Hey, i wanted to ask u, if u already have an XR, what would u do to make it better/reliable, without spending so much money on the imco scx?

If your upper is running XR gears the ratio is changed in the lower. From what I gather the upper gears are the issue, they either pop a tooth off or gall.

I am actually very curious about this also! That is if there is a reliable way to do it.

With all due respect. In your second post you stated a +800HP blower engine in your boat with an XR Bravo Drive.
You are listening here but you are not HEARING!

When you listen only and don't Hear you stop learning.
