Default Suzuki DF300 300hp Questions

When did they get the speedy lower?

When did they get the lean burn control?

"Speedy lower?" Can you elongate on what you are asking about?

And "lean burn control?" Are you asking if the owner/operator can control that?

I know what the op is referring to (improved lower unit and oxygen sensor use) but I donít know the answers. I can say however Iíve owned a 2007, 2013 and now 2017 DF300ís and all have been excellent engines. No issues with any. They all ran and felt the same with economy that was close across them all.

Great engines. Iím sure someone has your answers.

Funny Scott, I've had 2 2007, 3 2011, and now 3 2017s.

New lower came in 2012, lean burn in 2011. The new lower didn't make a difference in my application (35 Seahunter with trips). New lower engines are designated with "AP"

Thanks.

So lean burn and the lower didnt improve speed or efficiency? Weird.

No i didn't "go through" any of them. Sold boats, sold engines. As mentioned, I never had an issue with any of them.

2 sets had lean burn and the new lower. But they were on a different boat than the first one. All were very efficient.

Thanks,

My current engine died on Sunday, about a 90% chance there will be a new Suzuki DF300AP going on the transom, I am reading all I can about them....
