Fundeck 226 Engine change.
I have a 2004 FD226 with the 115hp Yamaha. I have been searching for a 200hp Yamaha Vmaxx to swap to but am not having a lot of luck. Has anyone went up to a 250hp on this boat? I know this is 50hp over the factory rating and weighs slightly more than the 200hp but these motors are easier to find. I did see in the forum a gentleman installed a 225 Honda and has good success with it.
Why I am asking is that the torque is more than what a 200hp would be and if it has any transom affect.
