Just a heads up. It’s a xs not a pro xs. Mercury racing was a difrent division then the line motors that made the pro xs. And it sounds like a great deal. You should post on the scream and fly website. It should sell really fast over There. Good luck with sale. Bump to the top.

This. Definitely not a pro xs. Totally a different engine but a free bump for a nice one.

I corrected the ad title 3 weeks ago. Perhaps one of you could spell out the difference for my potential buyers.

The pro xs only goes up to 250hp. And is built on the production side of the factory. Pro stands for production. The 300xs is a 3 litter block board out to a 3.2 and has a higher rev limiter. It is built by mercury racing and only came with a one year Warranty it is designed to run on 92 octane fuel and can burn up on 87. These motors are sought after the big bass boat and racing boats and are no longer made The powerheads alone are going for upwards of $10,000

good luck with sale they are fantastic motors

Thank you. As the ad says this one has the offshore mid with the remote trim pump. The rev limiter (soft) is 5800. It turns 6000 before it clips though. Most of the time I run it at 43-4600 because that's as fast as offshore conditions and my crew will allow I've been told it can be reflashed to turn 6800 which it will do with ease.

Dave bush has a reflash and kit that can get you to 325hp. With a lot more mid torque. Awesome motor.

Yep. The new motor will come in a crate we could use.

Will ship from 32168. Get several quotes at once from freightbroker dot com. Probably $400-500
