It says how much they will give you for your core, but does not say anything about how much to rebuild or refresh, I'm sure it's for a reason if 1075s cost 25 grand to redo, these must be 50 grand plus.

$9k core value, what a slap in the face for the price people are paying for these. They're not even changing that many parts out, so I hope the rebuild price isn't that much. If anyone doesn't like mercs offer of $9k for your core, I'll double it and give you $18k.....

Stellar success? What does that mean? How many hours are boaters getting out of these outrageously costly drive getting?

Both models are game changers and have lived up to the promise: Faster. Stronger. Farther. Longer. But as stout and trouble free as they’ve been, even these Torque Monsters will need attention eventually.

Sounds like a bunch of BS to me. Only another 20 or 30 grand. To refresh your almost new drive.

Its cheaper to rebuild a space shuttle motor when you consider miles traveled versus HP versus Speed..

So for a $9,000 core refund you get someone elses rebuilt core for a shorter turn around time?

What is the service life on those before rebuild?
