Default motor swap question???

my dad is getting ready to sell his sea fox and it has a 225 optimax on it. I have a 225 Evinrude DI on my 04 2350 Bluewater now. Will I gain anything if I swap motors with him or would it be like swapping apples for apples? I apreciate all the input.

Lee ;?

The opti is a better engine than th Evinrude DI and uses less oil-- gauges are better-- maybe? less noise-- really comes down to a personal choice plus all the work-- do you like Black better than White?
