Re: What's better, 50# lighter or 40hp more?

But a ecotec doesnt need a 40 gallon tank like a regular cm does. And then they dont burn that much fuel . So I would say its more than 20 bucks. Because thats cheap for avgas. It over 5 where I get mine

Re: What's better, 50# lighter or 40hp more?

13375 for engine/gearbix/prop. Depends where u are getting 540 from . Around 9500 for one from a reputable engine builder. Sell ur prop off ur boat for 1500. And ur only 3000 off. And u can run regular fuel and get parts from parts store. And it has a 1 year warranty

Re: Best prop to use

DD caddys need the harmonic balancer on motor to help keep harmonics out of prop. And a NGQ would be awesome on it.. And fyi Sidejobs broke a crank with Excalibur 4 blade bowtie. So u cant go blaming a Sensenich blade for y crank broke
