Can anyone tell me if there is an easy upgrade to increase power output on a Mercury 6hp Fourstroke circa 2003?

Yes and it involves the words whoops, splash and insurance claim

Not sure about your motor but the 6hp in most makes usually seems to be the biggest of a range which spans 4/5/6hp using the same cc block so I doubt it?

Thought it was worth asking

Haven't even fitted it to a SIB yet, but these things need to be asked
