My boat is technically rated for a 50 hp, so I want to put the proper rated HP on the boat but I don't want to lose to much power. I am hopping by going to the BIG FOOT I can get those higher mid and low range RPMs.
Loosing top end doesn't bother me I just need to be able to push weight in fast water.
so Will the 50hp 4 stroke big foot hold up against the old 91 60hp 2 stroke?
I have no experience with 4 strokes and need this motor in the next month an a half!!!! Please advice and opinions would be great.
When thinking about four strokes I would forget Mercury...I just watched a Russian video on youtube where an ETEC 60hp 2 stroke was pitted against a Suzuki DF50 four stroke...The Suzuki won!
