Purchased a 2013 X30 with the 5.7 Illmor. Is there anything different for winterizing the Illmor motors? Ive done Indmar for years. Just want to make sure I dont miss anything. What oil works well?

How do you fog the 5.7 Illmor?

Pull the spark plugs and spray it in the cylinders for 8 or 10 seconds. Put the plugs back in pull your kill switch cord and turn the motor over for a 10 seconds.

Who is your dealer and did you ask them about it?

I was considering doing mime myself. I always winterized my I/O myself, but the ilmor owners Manuel does not go into detail on which lines to pull. I do see a plug on each side of the block and I do remember the manifolds but are there other lines you need to pull to drain block? I have the 6.0

I have a 6.0 illmor as well. I have always winterized my X2 and its fairly easy but with my new X25 its different. Anyone out there got a step by step on doing a full winterization on a Illmor engine?

Traditionally you don't fog engines with CATS.

Is it because the oil will damage the O2 sensors or clog up or damage the CAT?

If you fog through the manifold I would think you'd put a lot more oil into the cats where as if you just put a couple of oz in the each cylinder it would end up being less going out the exhaust.

So anyone on here want to share what needs pulled on a 6.0, I know there are two plugs (one on each side of the block). I can guess that I need to disconnect the heater and blow the water out. Any ideas on how you drain the raw water shower? The manual is terrible compared to my old merceuiser manuals which walked you through step by step on proper winterization.

Shower : put each line in a gallon container of RV antifreeze and run both hot and cold until pink flows out

Heater: you can blow it out but safer to put one end in a gallon of RV antifreeze and use a shop vac on the other and suck the hole gallon of antifreeze through it

Done deal. Both ready for winter and depending on how cold it gets you can use either the minus 20 stuff if your in a semi controlled garage or the minus 50 stuff if your winters are brutal
