Bobcat I have always liked Johnson/Evinrude motors...especially the older very reliable carbed versions....they kinda went downhill for a while...then bombardier bought them out and after a couple of years owning them...they really started cranking out some good engines, from what some of the mechanics will allow...don't talk to sales guys, talk to the mechanics over a few beverages and you will get the info you seek...and don't bother asking a merk, Yahama, or Honda mechanic...because they will not give you any useful information on the competition...they will however dish them back in the weak years, just before they were bought out...BTW, as I recall, those E Tecs are clean burning 2 strokes and will walk off and leave the four strokes in the dust with much less annual maintainence hassles or expense...Hope this information helps...

How much are they asking for the motor? I might be in need for one soon.

I have a 2014 E-TEC 175 HP, so far I really like it. Mine is programmed for XD100 evinrude oil, runs about 40.00 a gallon. Trade off is it sip the oil compared to the 90 HP Mercury I traded in. Also sip the fuel, you won't be disappointed.
