Default 23 regulator repower

I am thinking about repowering my 23 classic regulator. It currently has a 2000 250 yamaha ox66.

I am considering either a pair of 200 e-tec's or 200 hpdi's

I was wondering if anyone has a regulator with the e-tec's

How do you like them, I have always been a yamaha guy but really like some feedback I have heard from the e-tec's

Great boat! I know someone that went from single SX250 to twin 200HPDI - They really lit the boat up. I think they are 03's and no problems - he is a stickler for maintenance. I'm a Yamaha guy but would definitely consider the ETECS. They are strong and seem to have a decent track record also. Consider the quality of service available for each in your area.

I was anti Johnson til I visited with a local dealer. The e-tecs are sweet! I'm about to repower a 23 from twin Johnson Ocean Runners to twin 150 Yamaha OX66. Anyone know if the motor mounting holes will have to be patched and re-drilled?

I'd either go with twin Yam F150's if you have to have twins- otherwise the new YAM v6 300 4-stroke.

We run the twin F150's and they are an awesome setup for the boat!! with that being said I would also think that twin 200 ETEC's would be great.....I always loved those motors...tons of torque!

I am extremely satisfied with my E-TEC's, honestly I could not happier with them. They are quiet, quick out of the hole, have tons of torque and get exceptional fuel and oil economy. I would never buy another boat without Evinrude's.
