I had an 05 225 ETEC, that I bought new, with well over 800 documented hours before it gave out. I had oil issue that the repair shop told me I had no way of knowing before I lost two cylinders. I was so impressed with ETEC, that I replaced with a new 250 ETEC and have zero issues with it. They are so quiet and easy on gas and oil. They both started on first crank. Did all maintenance the correct way. The only reason I went with the 250 is I have 20 1/2' BassCat Puma and I like the better hole shot and more speed of the 250.
