I plan on repowering soon. I currently have an older mercury black max 175 but plan on looking for a used efi or Optimax (probably early 2000s). Will I need to change my controls or are the old ones compatible? Thanks for any help

not sure about the controls but what is wrong with your 175? Considering upgrade from my old 150.....

Bought a center console with the plan to repower to something newer/more fuel efficient. Donít know much about the motor. It runs & has good compression but thatís about the most I could honestly tell you.
