    Seen that. I have always heard good things about Etecs.

    Doesn’t surprise me. Don’t know many who ran them but the ones I do aren’t all that impressed or happy. E Tec had a pretty good tie in with Ranger Boats but more and more Rangers were/are being ordered with out them.

    Those were brand new on 03 when I bought my boat. Too new for me to try. I chose a Yamaha and after 17 hard seasons I'm very impressed with it.

    Kind of surprised when I read that. They have a good reputation on
    A couple of boat sites I follow.

    It's a shame to see people out of a job. That said, BRP kept chasing and trying to redesign and over engineer the two stroke. Four strokes from Yamaha and Suzuki have been outselling them for a long time.
    I have a 90 hp E-tec (came with the used boat) and wouldn't consider buying another. I've got 12 years on a Yamaha 40/30 jet on my other boat and it has been trouble free compared to the E-tec which sees less hours. Repower will be either a Yamaha or Suzuki 4-stroke.
