From what I understand the 496 HO is the same engine as the 496 Mag but with a more radical cam profile and recalibrated computer.

The $4000 markup is typical Merc BS, it probably doesn't cost them one dollar more to manufacture the HO.

The difference between the two is cam and computer programming. Not a whole lot.

The difference in price between the engines only is about 1200 bucks!

However when buying engine/drive package the difference is about 5000 because Merc ships the 496 with a standard Bravo and the 496HO with an X drive.

So how much would one expect to spend on the 496 complete engine all the way to prop? I'm not much of an engine guy and get confused when prices are qupted, thinking certain pieces are missing.
