Hey guys I've got a 2001 Mercury 175 EFI and lost compression. I'm looking for some recommendations to do a rebuild or give me some options, preferably in the north DFW area. TIA

A second for Texas Outboard Rebuilders. Have 2 buddies that have motors done by them, still running strong.

Be sure and check the price on a Mercury remanufactured powerhead.

Stay away from anything with Blackbird in the name.

I second this.

He normally has the engines sent off to get all new sleeves put in. All new pistons, rods and bearings.
Its like a new engine if the core is good. I am having a 225 pro max build up right now. I expect it to be as close to a new rotating assembly as you can get for a 20 year old engine.
