15 years of running the dog piss out of my 250 HPDI and I finally blew my power head yesterday. The only issue I ever had out of that motor was bad fuel down at 3 rivers, and that was in 07. Cant even get upset about it, she was a damn good motor! Everyone have a great and blessed day.

You got a good life out of that one.

Curious, what was your fuel regimen? Additives? What octane?

BOAT. Lot's of truth in that. I just tore a hole in my 7 year old boat cover but cheaper than your loss.

I bought my nitro savage, with a 150 Mercury EFI. Still purrs like kitten, and runs like a scalded dog. I have always used mercury oil, and premium fuel most of the time. Wish I had an hour meter.

For the most part I ran 87 ethanol free gas with ring free. When I did run ethanol gas I made sure to put stabilizer in it. I changed fuel filters every year and have changed the micro filters on the injectors twice.

So with a blown powerhead it's cheaper to just buy a new motor? Clueless about boats, and most other things for that matter.

Not even close to the price of a new motor. That new powerhead is going to cost between 6 to 8 thousand. New engine will probably run you 25.

$20,000 for a New SHO vs $4500 for a rebuilt power head.

If your able to get yours done and last for 4,500 make sure and let us know who. Mines about 11 years old and needs to last me a long time.

Did you run it a lot bud? Regularly. That seems to be the key with these HPDIs. They want to be run. Dont like to sit. did you lose a cylinder?

Hey, bro...knew we had something in common. I did the same thing a couple of weeks ago. My repair will be at the tune of $7,500, paid extra for a two year warranty. It's a '99 200EFI. They just ain't made to last forever! Yes, have a great and blessed day.
