I do not have an opinion one way or the other, they all seem to be great. My Indmar Ford in my 91 PS190 has been great.

Now, to clear the record about Ilmor, not only do they produce racing engines for the auto racing scene, they have been in the high performance marine offshore scene for a very long time.

My PCM has 1965 hrs. Never done anything more than tune ups, oil changes, one oil pump, and one repair to the starter since it was purchased new in 85. Took 5 kids out tonight, three who had never been. Set the choke, let it idle for one minute while unhooking it from the trailer and for the next three hours not one issue. Get the swim Mets back in the boat, put a board on someone and turn the key. We're off. I know plenty of people who love their Indmars, but I'm a PCM boy for sure.

I think they all make decent products. I have had success with both Indmar and PCM.
The most important thing IMHO, is how each motor has been treated and MAINTAINED.
I don't care what brand you have, if it has been abused it's going to be trouble.

Now, that being said, I have heard that the 5.7 PCM's in the new Nautique 200's have been burning a decent amount of oil between regular changes......

That would be news to me. PCM has been using the same 350 long block since 2002 in their Excal motors. Probably the same longblock that all the other marinizers (Indmar and Ilmore included) are using as well.

None of the Excals I ski/skied behind drank a drop of oil, as far as I know.

Not in the 196's just the 200's......perhaps the higher rpm's that the 200's have to run?

Sorry to thread jack but ETS you zip tied your oil drain hose up. Just curious what's the purpose of this looks interesting.

Not sure why it would be any different... surely there are 196's that pull a lot of barefooting (I know of a few). Its not like the rev limiter is set any different between the 2 boats.

Again, this is the first Ive heard of it... no mention of any such occurrence on CCFan or PN. Or from the dealer I speak with regularly.

Glad I haven't heard of any Indmar's burning a lot of oil. (cough, cough, L18)
