no.. will motor be sitting out side or in a fairly insulated garage. If it was me - I would ask how does the internals of the motor stay coated with oil to not corrode in the swings of midwest winter temps and humidity.

How would fogging through the fuel filter not get oil on the plugs? Besides I don't see how you could put enough oil in the fuel filter while its submerged in fuel in the fuel tank. Or is he saying to fog through the air filter?

The intake on your boat is called a dry intake, IE it has fuel injectors over each cylinder. On these types on systems it is recommended to fog through the spark plug hole.

Skipper is right in a way. Fog the cylinders using old spark plugs , that way , in their thinking they can get you a new set in the spring. Fog it all. Injectors , cylinders, spray the motor down with a WD-40 type on the external parts. It works. Insulated garage or not, unless your taking all of us out for a ski run in December, there needs to be protection inside the engine too.

Actually IIRC the owners manual for Ilmors says to fog through the intake

I looked through the 6.2 owners manual I downloaded from Ilmor before I posted. It has nothing in it about fogging under their winterization procedures.

I believe the concept is that it's a dry intake and coating it with heavy oils is not recommended.
