Hmmmm....interesting but not sure how viable it will be. Ilmore hasn't exactly set the world on fire with their V-10 offering, for comparison. That is a LONG engine with a LONG crankshaft. I wish them luck but...

Thanks for the post Matt! We will be running 1100s in the boat at the Shootout. Look forward to talking with OSO members at Captain Ron's and Super Cat Fest.

You can hear the 1400 running here:

Ilmor was working on a supercharger for their V-10 platform when the bottom dropped out of the HP stern drive market in 2008-09. Not long afterwards Ilmor scraped the entire V-10 platform. They didn't think the market would be big enough going forward to support them and Mercury.

Cool engine that V-16. I too wish them luck.

You're welcome of course. In the original story, I had the new engine in Jeff Stevenson's MT! 42 at 1,400 hp. But they are running the 1,100-hp versions. The 1,400-hp version recently was dyno tested but won't be in the boat. I corrected the story within a few minutes but I apologize for any confusion may have caused.

Seems as though youíre essentially adding the weight of 4 engines. For reasonable power of 2 motors Ö. I mean 1400 is run of the mill these days whatís the added benefit of going v16 other than saying they are v16.

the deck on the v10 is to thin. It didnít hold up to supercharged marine use.

Back in 2013 the Wilsonís weíre doing some testing on my Ilmor Comp. Their Fountain race boat was the test bed for Ilmorís SC test program. They Loved the 710ís with a SC. Made over 900HP and after 200 hours of use they tore the 710s down and there was hardly any wear on the engines at all. At least thatís what they told me.

I like the idea of the V-16 from Sixteen Power of a Naturally aspirated motor; Steve Morris Engines pictured below is making the two LS engines (V-16) work pretty well in testing with four 81 mm turbos.



One LS Crank compared to the V-16 Crank
