Optimax 135

Hello! I have a Mercury Optimax Saltwater 135 yearmodel 2006. Has anyone made the Ecu-modification to increase 135 Hp optimax to a 150/175 opti? How much does the operation cost? Do I have to make any other changes.
The gear ratio in 135 is 2.00:1 and Opti 150 has 1.87:1
Thank you already!

Mercury

Thank you for your opinion. Is here in the forum anyone how has actually made the modification or really knows somebody who has made it? I noticed that the ecu for 150 optimax costs in ebay 400 euros and in mercury dealer like 3000 e euros in Finland

It can't be done, mainly for financial reasons.

Have a look here Scream and Fly Linky and you may be able to squeeze some more out of it with a programable ECU.

Beware though, extra performance will come at the cost of fuel economy and reduced engine life (plus your warranty will be void!)
