I was able to talk with the Etec dealer today and their mechanic, as well as test run a set of them. Lots of power, a deeper growly sound than the Verados and a bit louder, but honestly nothing that the guests up front would be able to tell the difference from due to the windage.

The new engine looks like a good setup - they have a relatively easy to access sight tube for seeing the level and clarity of the lower unit oil, nifty feature. They also split the exhaust from the pistons into two chambers from each set, meaning better heat distribution and less stress on the bottom cylinder.

Now that you have mastered the editing,Can internet trolls read error codes Mollers?
If your an ambassador for the brand, no wonder they sell in very limited numbers. So well done for that!
Why dont you go and play in the fast lane of the M5 ( a long road in the UK) and do everyone a favour!

You two are both giving each other the reaction you want, and are as bad as each other. If you were actually offended by what was posted you would have used the "Report Post" option and let us deal with it. However EVERYONE here is fed up with the two of you squabbling.

Yesterday I refreshed my memory of how the "Ban User" function works on here. Its very straight forward and is a lot quicker than being the playground monitor. Can I suggest you both do the following so everyone else gets some peace too: Follow this link, and add each other to the list..

Well, not quite everyone - I find them quite compulsive viewing - like watching mice playing under a Paiute Deadfall...

But I hear ya!
