Hi Searhorse,

I checked the plate on the engine and it say july 2006,it has three engine cover clips the model is E150DCXSUF

Surely if it has 2006 stamped on the plate then this is what it should be.

However on checing the BRP Parts site you are quite correct this model is only listed as a 2007.What do you make of this !!!

Here it is, still 2007 and for the past 4 months you can go to a car dealer and buy a 2008 model!

Same thing in the boat business, the new model year changes in July.

Many marine motor manufactures no longer have actual model years. They list production dates only. They did this because usually the changes from year to year are incremental in nature unless an actual new design is introduced. They also did it so dealers aren't forced to take large markdowns on last years motors when there is no difference in the product. The only way to tell how new your new motor is by serial number and production date. It's not uncommon for a motor to be produced, warehoused six months or more before being shipped to a dealer. It's still a new motor.
