    Those are some interesting numbers...I guess I'd have to ask why they advertise the 496 HO MAG's Hp @ 425 when stock, it's nowhere near that.

    They rate the black motors at the flywheel not prop if you look at the 4th dyno sheet it's 431hp at the flywheel@5000rpm's....Only Mercury Racing motors are rated at the prop.

    I guess I learn a new thing everyday. I'm not a motor head by any stretch, but that's good info to know if I'm ever in the market to change out my engine for something with a bit more umph...thanks.

    I personally think in stock form there is no magic HP increase for the 496 other than setup...All the rest of the BS is myth's IMO

    That's cool!

    Bob Lloyd and Mark LeBlanc are very good friends of mine from our old Crownline days. Bob definitely knows his stuff.
