Actually I think it looks like the upgraded drives that BIGGUS put on his CIG. I can't remember what they are called right now...BRAIN FART!

Don't really care what the heck it looks like, is it stronger?

A restyled case should pretty well kill the value of used bravos. Of course, the rebuilt ones will cost the same while new ones will cost more because they are discontinued.

I don't expect it to be any stronger,just easier and quieter shifting, no clunk like the old ones. It just kinda easily and silently goes in and out of gear like a hydraulic trans. A nice improvement, but the stronger drive is down the road,I heard maybe Miami show introduction?

There was an article in last months power boat with pics... they re-desined the top cap to be stronger and the main focus was on the shifting, like magic said..

I bet it will look pretty tight with an ITS setup.
