Got a s/h ecu now, will shortly put them on the outboard and see what happens. If all works well I'll have upgraded to a 115 from a 90 for 600.

Good work!

What do you reckon, another 5-6 knots plus better hole-shot?

Unfortunately two years of the boat sitting in the drive hasn't helped me get this job done..
However I have ordered all the necessary gaskets, and the 115 sticker for the cowling of course, and intend to change out the cams and change the ECU over the next month or so.
Although my reading of the service and parts manual says this is perfectly feasible has anybody else try this conversion?
Its commonly mentioned on forums but can't see any evidence that anybody has actually done it for real.
In theory altered mapping with slightly different and larger cam timing plus another 500 for the 115 revs should work
I'll soon find out if it can be done and everything else within the engine is the same as the parts manuals suggest!.

Won't win any races even with a 115, it a bit of a porky 5.8 because of all the kit on board and the weight of the missus...............

BruceB does your missis go on this site? If she does and we dont see anymore comments from you, who shall we contact? Good luck with your re-build.

I have something most folk wish they had, a wife with a sense of humour...........
Now if I could just get her to do all the cooking and cleaning in the maids outfit she would be just perfect

There is one on EBay just now, don't know if it's compatible. Nothing to do with me.
