    Looks like the gaskets are the same part number. For example - both 1983 60hp, and 2011 Etec 2cyl - same gasket.

    Wow, seems like someone would have pointed that out a long time ago.

    Until electric takes over and fuel's hard to find! Hope I'm dead before that happens...

    A current 45 motor is in the 65 HP + or - minus a little... something like that. What is the HP of the 2011 Etec 2 cylinder motor?

    How about the weight?

    Thank you.

    not sure but they have big potential when you look at the airflow, maybe new head and twin barrel carbs?
    ( saying that a flywheel will be a problem so after market ignition or stick to e-tec)

    2-cyl Etec is 40/50/60hp depending on computer & injectors... There is a LOT of complex oil injection lines, oil tank, fuel injection components, wiring, computer, etc attached to this powerhead that likely would not fair too well left exposed while racing and the top cowling of the Etec doesn't really attach to the powerhead, rather sits firmly on two large plastic lower side covers so some sort of custom lower pan set up to accept the stock top cowling would be needed. Maybe it should also be mentioned that Evinrude is out of business and I don't think anyone has hacked into the Etec computer yet for custom rev limits, fuel injection, extra oil, etc.

    I did own a 60hp Etec for a couple years and bought it from a customer for whom I rigged it when brand new with a jet pump. I was intimately familiar with it and it was a reliable, VERY strong engine for 60hp. It pushed my 24ft pontoon as fast or faster than the previous 115hp carb Johnson engine.

    Etec's were advertised as powerful compared to competition, that all changes on course of course. To keep one as is and race would be tuff on that reliability. The complications of it being a clean running yet fast motor would be put to the test there then there's speed.. Of course you would want it to be faster, where might that bring it? Not to say run as a stock outboard [actually super stock on 45 lower] It could be an exciting class or add to the class it would fit into.

    the current 45 cowl will go over it no problem
