If you own or have owned an EFI and have history, good or bad I ask for your opinion and, to relate any experiences. Thank you!

I have a 150 EFI - same basic engine. It has been great - extremely reliable - always starts on the first turn of they key (2nd after winter storage).

IMHO, it's very sad that we won't be able to buy these simple, light engines in a couple years.

This 2.5 Liter 60 degree EFI V6 is highly evolved and refined and is as close to bullet proof as can be. At least that is my opinion and I have two, a 200hp Merc RXi and a 150 Mariner Magnum. Both are turnkey starting and extremely quiet at speed. happy Whalin'.. Clark ... Spruce Creek Navy

I love my twin Mercury 200 EFI's. The first thing everybody says when riding in the boat: "Wow, those engines are QUIET!"

When I bought them, I avoided the advice of the salesman, and went out back to talk to a top mechanic that I trusted.
He said, "buy them" - "Once we sell them I never see them again". He was right.
