    does anyone know what the difference in the E-tec 50 and 60 is? that are same cu in. and the same weight the Suv 17 is rated for a 50 but if possible I would love to run a E-tec 60 since it is the same weight. :cool:

    Two things.

    1) Same motor, different computer tuning.
    2) DON'T DO IT. The 'hatsu 40 on a semi-light SUV17 is scary WFO. Just my opinion though.

    gramps is right the suv 17 moves pretty well with the 40. With 4 people and full live well and gear the boat was hitting 29 with a yami 40 stroke. The boat is also set up with all the bells and whistles so it a heavy to start with. Mel has built them to run well with lower hp and thats exactly what they do
