Default 36 yellowfin repower from 350 Verado to 350 Suzuki's

We just finished this repower of a 36 Yellowfin going from triple 350 Verados to Triple 350 Suzuki's. The 0-30 hole shot dropped 2.5 sec and we gained 2 mph on the top end to see 66 MPH. I included a quote from the customer on his reaction and a pic of the old mercs as well which also had jack plates which were removed to install the new Suzuki's.

"Gettin her dialed in. Real world same load same fuel amount.
2mph faster than the Old 350ís. Fuel about the same as old motors. Slightly better, slightly worse at different RPMs, way better at wahoo trolling speeds. Boat runs flatter. Slow speed handling is ridicules, pivots, turns, stops on a dime. So much bite in the water.
Still playing with some props & heights, lets see if Mike & Mike at Outboard Specialties have any more tricks up their sleeves!!! @outboard_specialties"

If those are Mirage plus on that setup with trips Vrods with new lowers thats the wrong prop setup for that boat. Looks good with those white engine.

I'm not sure what props were on the mercs, but I know the customer tried multiple props before settling on these. Another set might have been faster top end but sacrificed elsewhere, I don't know. He is the type of guy that gets his rig dialed in, hence why he put the jack plates on too.

Tried that setup...actually a little faster on top with Mirage but did not hook up well midrange.

He was running Enertia Ecos on the 350 Vrods after playing with many props.

From my conversation with the boat owner who is a close friend, he is very happy with the switch - has me thinking my next boat might finally be the boat that I splurge and buy new engines for, especially if I can find a good repower candidate.

Those zukes look great on the back. I wish someone would put 3 on a 33t to see how it would perform

I'll be looking out for the twins on a 35st thread. That should be a sweet package

Default Nice!

Canít wait to see fuel burn numbers. My buddy has a 38í fountain with trip 300 pro xs optiís and he was thinking verado 350ís, but we fish with the boat heavy and thinking these might be the way to go. If you can PM me a ballpark on the trips with props and rigging, thanks.
