Ilmor Engines

Just out of curiosity, has anyone heard if there is an update coming in the next few years to the line of Ilmor engines that Mastercraft uses? They have great options at the moment, just seems like everything in constantly changing.

It would be nice to see something other than an old iron block and head small block with giant cast exhaust manifolds as the base engine. Then new Indmar Raptors look pretty good. Their exhaust solution seems simpler, cleaner and lighter too.

I prefer the iron lock vs aluminum just for the fact it is additional free ballast weight.

For most applications, this is true, but not for the ProStar. I'm amazed that they got a modern 20' boat that light WITH an all iron engine/header combination in there. The 6.2L is a big dollar upgrade with power that doesn't really help slalom skiers who aren't at ridiculous altitudes. It would be nice to lose 200# from the boat, but not for the $10k extra thankyouverymuch.
