Fit wedge shaped packers to reduce the transom angle

Thatís the first I thought - but is it really a liable option? I havenít seen it anywhere.

You can buy wedge sections for the purpose usually the other way around but shouldn't be a problem to install upside down

These won't go upside down but you get the idea it's something thats easily made maybe from a plastic material or wood or aluminium like these if you can get someone to machine the taper

I doubt it's an electronic sensor more likely a bypass port with prv to avoid overload of tilt rather than trim

If the tilt mechanism of the engine is designed to work in that manner - and the pic he posted of the instruction manual says it is - a bigger battery isn't going to make any difference.
In the absence of a way of altering the engine's operation changing the mounting angle or replacing the engine would appear to be the only alternatives.

Itís regulated by a spring operated valve. Above a certain force (2000rpm), the hydraulicoil flows past the valve, and it will not come up any further.
But it makes zero sense, every Mercury has this.. design fault!! So a new or other Merc isnít going to help a thing.

Sooo why is it working for GA Marine here??
And why is it freaking straight level at that speed?

Perhaps best asking them how they did it - or raising the matter with Mercury themselves to see what, if anything, they can suggest that would change things.

Can't see the 'design fault' argument. According to the pic of the manual you posted appears to be intended to avoid the engine lifting above a point which could cause serious damage to the engine due to lack of coolant. As it's an American company its possibly to reduce litigation/warranty claims from users who choose to ignore the warnings -even though under Warranty Information it clearly states that damage arising from that is specifically excluded.

The online manual also includes in a yellowy/gold coloured box
"! WARNING
Trimming the outboard beyond a neutral steering condition may
result in a pull on the steering wheel or tiller handle and loss of
boat control. Maintain control of the boat if trimming beyond a
neutral steering condition."
That box colour & caption is their "Indicates a hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could result in death or serious injury." So may be another feature to prevent litigation.

As far as changing the engine for something else is concerned you said in an earlier post the Yamaha, Evinrude etc don't have this feature so why would you want to buy another Mercury?
