The ILMOR 570 is an entirely different animal from the 522 hp Mastercraft skiboat engine. Entirely custom-built with variable cam timing, it makes the Merc 565 look like the dinosaur that it is. By the way, ILMOR's unveiling took place 15 minutes after Mercury's. Fred Kiekhafer looked VERY, VERY unhappy...
