I will email and see what the power increases are and pricing.
I thought the same thing. With what Mercury said about the 3.0L I thought there would be lots of room for HP. I will have to call Simon and talk to somebody.Maybe they left off a zero? I don't think you'd even notice a 10 HP difference on a 150. No point in buying that.
The 150 is a 3.0L engine. Mercury's 300 Verado (supercharged) is a 2.6L. It has 6 cylinders though, so completely different motor. Just saying the 150 should be able to pump out a lot more than it does stock...
Yamaha got the 200 hp by increasing the compression ratio and putting a large throttle body on their 4 cylinder engine. They get more speed as the increased horsepower will push a higher ratio gear box. The F200 owners appear very satisfied with speeds approaching that of SHO engines on tritoons, but they should be faster with a $2800 price differential vs. the F150.I wonder what my 200 could produce with an ecm programing change. Even though I think it is basically what Yamaha already did to get it to 200 from the 150 it is based on.
