    E-Tec or 4 Stroke Motor

    Im not pointing fingers im just sik or reading same shit bout pros n cons for both the guy just wants to buy a boat not buy into a debate about whivh motor is better based on people wjo luv wot they own i didnt recomend an old school 2st but thats wot i have and im vrry happy with it im just sik of resding same arguments every time this comes up there is no right no wrong and neither is better unless it suits your needs....debates about wot car got brought up wtf does that have to do with outboard selection he needs to go try both then choose i wish he bought a 2st merc to shut everyone up that would be gold in my small opiniated world done

    E-Tec or 4 Stroke Motor

    Just a comment but if my 90 yammie blew up and i was goin to spend my hard earned i wouldnt buy an etec or a 4st i would buy another 90 2st yammie cause i want the reliability an performance i have now this two horse race between etec lovers an 4st lovers is gettin a bit old hat an im sick of hearin bout it no1 buy wot u can afford and buy to suit wot u r goin to do most this has all been covered in this topic and others it doesnt matter wot 15 biased outboard owners on this site say it boils down to your choice of wot will suit the best i hope you are happy with your purchase which ever way you go and may you never break down on the water...to the rest of the chidish biased one eyed commentors i hope you never break down on the water either...this guy wanted some advice not a massive debate ...may your boating be a much more enjoyable time than this topic....rant done.....rick

    E-Tec or 4 Stroke Motor

    If cost of purchase and cost of running come into the equation i look at it like this...2000 more on purchase price equates to about 1600 ltrs of fuel if u buy cheaper motor how long will it take u to use 1600 ltrs in a 60 hp...rick
