150

Hi, you have to be pretty carefull when it comes to changing exhaust plates, dividers, etc etc and especially jets in my opinion. When any outboard has the wrong jets in the carbs you are going to run LEAN or RICH. most danger is running too lean and obviously lean is HOT and this causes damage. I have seen the old style mariner 150 and 175hp carb engines with the wrong jets in and seen melted pistons from it. I wouldnt do it if it was my OB. cheers

It's probably a good idea to get at least a basic idea of performance engine tuning before you comment.

I'm with Outboardtech -I wouldn't try for a power increase. Apart from anything else, you've got a tight new engine that needs running in. If you get anything wrong, it'll be a very expensive mistake. Changing port height is going to change the torque curve of the motor too (plus the time and equipment involved in getting port height and profiles exactly the same over 6 cylinders) and you're quite likely to find you're either falling foul of the rev limiter before you hit peak power, or bogging down at low revs.


It's easier and more practical to buy a bigger engine.

I did not mention high performance engine tuning or even that I was relating to the marine sector, however it is a fact that certain high performance engines run cooler and more efficiently lean of peak. Or do you disagree with that?

Yes, I do disagree with that. Apart from anything else,the phrase 'performance engine' is a misnomer,your statement is showing no constants and 'lean of peak' means absolutely nothing. Lean what? Peak what? Cooler than what? Trousers? Hair growth rate? Hot air output?



If You hadn't noticed, this thread is to do with one specific outboard.If you're not referring to an outboard then your post is irrelevant to the discussion anyway.
