What I have read/heard so far.......

557CID
2 twin screw Lysholm screw-type superchargers
Multi-port fuel injection, 2 injectors/cylinder
Eight ignition coils, one/cylinder
Smartcraft controller
Merc dry-sump #6 drive standard
PCM038 micro-processor controller handles all spark, knock, variable boost control (electronic bypass valve), timing etc. ; has capability to automatically decrease engine power if any monitored parameter is out of accepted levels.

Not sure of $$$$$- I'm sure it will be obscene.

I probably couldn't even buy the flame arrestor/inlet silencers for it. (they are made from carbon fiber- and patented)
For what these 1075's are going to cost, turbines make a lot more sense, and actually will last thousands of hours, not tens.) The only reason people don't get into them is because they don't understand them.

Yes sir, Thats about right with free rebuilds. We will soon find out on a pair of 1075"s when they become available late spring from Merc Racing for our new 396 Sunsation project.

I also think many people feel that the sound of a piston powered V8 is simply too pleasing to the ear to give up for a turbine.
