Sort of what I was thinking as well.

If you're considering the Verado 225, why not the Yam 225 4-stroke as well? The Yam is 60 lbs lighter, they're both 6 cyl 4-strokes.

That's interesting. Perhaps I should go for either the 6.4 with a 175 or the 6.8 with a 225. The Verado does seem to be much more thirsty and heavy but faster on the acceleration.

Thats a pritty fair way of looking at it. My next question would be how long will you keep the engine for? i.e. the worst time to sell an engine is when its just out of warranty i.e. for the yam or verado you would want to sell it after 4.5 years and a honda after 5.5 years or keep it for 7-8 years+. The reason for this is the buyer feels a lot safer spending his money on an engine with warranty than without due to there being no come back if things go wrong. after 7-8 years the price will be a lot less.

anyway hope this is helpful
