The electronics will stop it going above a certain revs... 2000rpm if I remember... while in neutral. If you put it in gear and rev to that you will probably empty the bin in seconds.

If you have problems at high revs running in a bin isn't the answer. You really need to get it on the water under a normal load to assess how it runs.

Totally agree with David but I would run it with clean fuel to try and washout as it were until the mechanic can get to it as i said the high pressure filter I think would have saved you well I hope so

That wont help to run it at full chat and could cause damage, apart from being quite dangerous .......... the engine needs a load on the prop, so the only way to test it is in the drink, or a large testing tank (most dealers have these).
