Consequently, an uprated version of the 4,855shp (3,620-kW) General Electric T64, called the T64-GE-717, was considered as an interim power plant in the first 60 aircraft. This option might provide the power but not the sfc, reliability, and other MTE specifications, and also entailed additional costs for a future modification to the final engine design. Likewise, a version of the Avco Lycoming T55 was under consideration. However, it later developed that three engine manufacturers - General Electric, Pratt & Whitney, and Allison - assured the airframe manufacturers that prototypes of their MTE power plants would soon be available.

The idea was to generate cost-control discipline and to shift more of the program risk from the government. 5 billion. The unusual fixed-price contract for development and the first three low-rate production lots compelled the contractor to make changes to the proposed design to reduce risk, especially with respect to potential weight increases. To meet the guaranteed empty weight a crushable floor, intended to reduce crash impact forces imparted to occupants, was eliminated. Using their own funds, the contractors had been hard at work since June 1985 with continued research and development (R&D) aimed at further risk reduction.

A few off-site tests were planned, including sea trials aboard ship. Flights by military crews alone would be performed during operational evaluation (OPEVAL) at a number of locations. Motion-based manned simulators and the XV-15 were employed for aircrew raining. The first V-22 was revealed to the world in a rollout ceremony on 23 May 1988 at Arlington. At that time the first flight was scheduled for June (soon changed to around 15 August) and initial delivery of the first production example in December 1991.
