opti max & Etec

I hate to say it but both those types of outboads full blown tech night mares and a scam. To those that have them and are proud sorry but the kis keep it simple rings true here good luck to all went back to 50 merc 2 stroke then 4 stroke yami but no high tech two strokes have a friend who is a etec dealer he has his oil pump turned up to 50 to 1 stock is 100 to 1 so there it is .
