Got to agree with nos. I bought my SR 5.4 with a very old beat up 60 Evinrude two years ago. The price was right tho at under 5k even with shipping it to over here. Changed the engine last year to a dealer refurbed Yam 90 which is a trouble free brilliant engine (this cost just over 2k so overall budget about the same). Differrence in hole shot at top end is immense. gained over 12 kts.
