Default Honda 150 vs 200

I see alot on here about motors that have more or less power than listed. My question is how much of a difference is there between the Bf 150 and 200? We are repowering within a year and are curious. We want a small block if at all possible for the efficency. Also what happened to the BF 175? Thanks

The 150 is 2.35 liters and the same block as the 135. This is the Honda Civic block. The 200 and 225 are the same block--3.5 liters. If there is any question, go with the 200 or 225 (assuming the boat can handle the weight and power). If yoj are running at displacement speeds, the 135 or 150 will be best--if you want to plane, then go the larger block.

You will get better MPG with the bigger motor , if your going 200 hp , the 225 is the same weight.

No one ever complains about to much power.

I don't know about the 200 , but the 225's are a huge difference.
I repowered from twin 150's to 225's, it made an incedible difference overall and I see about 5% better fuel mileage.
I can now cruise 38 mph at 4000-4100 rpm. 34 mph at 3800 rpm.
The 225 has the V-Tec technology where the 200 does not, they claim a 20% better fuel mileage with V-Tec.

The BF135 and BF150 share the same block as the Element, CRV and 4-cyl. Accord NOT the Civic.
The BF200 and BF225 are the six cylinder motors that power the Pilot, Odyssey and Ridgeline.
The Bf70 and BF90 are based on the Civic motor.

The 150 and 225 are the V-TEC models.

HullSlap - you were pretty close, but there is one more correction. The NEW fuel injected BF75/90 is based on the Fit block (1.5 liter) which also happens to be the Honda's best selling car in the world right now. The old carburated BF75/90's were based on the old Civic block (1.6 liter). The new Civics have a 1.8 liter block.
