I would consider a later upgrade just because I can at the moment.



dihrdskir....mate, thanks for the offer, but I am in Townsville, so guessing nowhere near yourself. I take it you would prefer the 6l over the 5.7l engines?
No problem. You're right I am nowhere near Townsville but the offer is still on the table. I cannot compare the 5.7 ilmor as I have never owned anything equipped with one. I have owned a number of boats over the years with various configurations of the venerable small block in 270 to 350 hp . For grin value the 6.0 has it with ample power right across the rev range. As for grunt we can deep water start 4 100 kg barefooters and hold 40+. The MCX in the same boat could not. Depends on what you want to do with it if you are prepared to part with the extra cash but from what I hear the 5.7 will be enough.
