There is a metal link rod from the plastic throttle cam on the side of the engine. On the end is a grey plastic ball link. The metal rod can after a few hours slide into the plastic ball link and limit the travel of the rod when at WOT. I had this happen on my 115 and lost a fair bit of top end as a result. The dealer I took it to pulled the rod out about 5mm and then epoxied it in place which seemed to do the job. There could also be other linkage and cable related problems that could cause this I would make sure it is all set up right as well.

Also worth checking you have the latest software map etc.

Its worth posting on here if you have any E-tec questions

Tim,

We had a similar problem with ours 2 years ago. Normally the engine could rev all the way up to 5700 RMP but suddenly we could only go to 5400 RMP. As we were new to boats, we did not pay further attention to it and kept on sailing. At the end it appeared to be a spark plug that did no longer work. The whole engine block had to be replaced.

can also be a faulty injector - find a good E-TEC dealer and he should run diagnostic on your motor.
running with too lean mixture will damage at least that cylinder.
basically at a 6 caylinder engine and 1 cylinder not working you should loose about 1000 rpm, but who knows ?
