Has anyone thought of or actually chip tuned their outboard?
I would like some feedback if this is a good or bad idea.

Hi Al,

There have been many posts/replies over the last 4 years or so on this topic. I would use the “search” feature to try to dig through for them.

There are a fair number of people on here that have done it. Most all have always shared positive experiences and have enjoyed the performance results. There are many others that have expressed reasons why they haven’t or wouldn't’. They too have had some good points and reasons.

Finally, in 2020 there have been a few discussions in this forum about doing them because Mercury started to threaten legal action and shut down most (all?) of the shops doing it. ThIs caused some discussion and speculation as to whether other manufacturers might follow suit.

Look at "Yamaha ECU Remapping" even if you have a different brand motor.
