Yamaho or Tohatsu? for 50hp AND 25-30hp

Hi guys. I'm going to but a 50hp Yamaha or Tohatus in the near future. I'm also concidering getting a 25 or 30hp as well. What would you reccomend out of Yamaha or Tohatsu?
I'm concerned with performance, reliability and would also like an engine that doesen't sound to bad. Any recommendations? Anyone seen any indipendant tests on these engines?

Interesting. Sounds like a great motor although the motor I would be purchasing is the regular carbie model.

From my own personal experience from using both Tohatsu (My own engine) and Yamaha (My friends engine) at 40 HP in the 2 Stroke range then go Yamaha. I should imagine the 50 HP versions of the engine are not much different. The Yam has a nice engine note which is not as obtrusive as the Tohatsu. It seems a lot quicker. The main reason for going Tohatsu has to be the price, but if you can get a good deal on the Yam then do it.
