Default B-MAX drive any experience - good or bad

I'm considering a setup using a B-MAX drive with a 572 cu in and 625 HP. Anybody have any experience with this drive using this type of moderate power?

We had Bmax drives on our Slingshot with 500efi's and prochargers and they worked great.

We have a set of their new Billet lowers and beefed up uppers ordered for my 800hp Kevlar Gun.
They claim a one year warranty with this set up, we will let you how she goes in a few weeks or so!

800's in a 42' Fountain....IMCO's died and Bmax survived.
Make sure you don't use the Merc lube in them...they'll burn up on that chit.

I think the billet drive you are talking about at the Doller Marine display was from MaxMachine. They really seem to be ahead of most when it comes to bravo based outdrives.

A guy at my marina had them on a 37 Hustler Talon and I think he blew up at least 6 before sending the boat back to the factory to be converted to 6's.
