Verado 275

Interested in any first hand experience of this engine. Pros and cons. Real world performance and feedback including the DTS system. How does the power steering feel? Are the SC1000 guages useful? How is fuel consumption? Acceleration. Yep, the complete rundown.

I am having my engine delivered in March and will be having both DTS foot- and remote controls.

On those two boats I have tried, the accelaration was very good and plenty of torque.

Have tried both Verado 225 hp and 250 hp and so far just good and I have full confidence in their range.

There is another thread on here recently giving consuming and comparison to other engines, the only thing I found was in the test Verado had smallest prop........... whether that has made difference I can not tell, but had far best consumption on cruising revs pr. mile.

First time I tried DTS my colleages had big laughs as I did start using the throttle like I used to do all the time resulting beeing a newbie driving manual shift car for first time...............

bogib, got your mail thanks.

Did you find the mid-range torque much better than anything else or just as good?

I have tried Evinrude 200 FICHT and ETEC and was selling them in the past with trouble making FICHT system and I did not find mid-range torque different from Verado to others. Have also tried Yamaha 250.

To feel the difference you would actualy need to try them all out in a row and that I havenīt so mainly based on memory and feeling.

I dont suppose your including yourself in that statement your attitude seems to me akin to an angry school teacher demanding answers from naughty children I just speak it as I find it manners cost nothing as for chilling out I am !! in fact I am having a really good day

PS. Glad you sorted yourself out with a rib never really heard of them before I read your thread so went and had a look at there web site they look a stunning bit of kit good luck with it
