I' thinking abour repowering my 25 Outrage with new twin 150's. I'd apprefciate opinions about the relative merits of twin 2-stroke HPDI 150 yamahas @ $8999 each and twin 150 EFI 4-strokes @20999 for the pair.Please comment on performance, fuel consumption, maintenance and engine life. Thanks. Jim

Get the 4's you won't be sorry. I have twin 200 HPDI's on my 255, performance is great,economy is fine but if the 4'rs were available I would have went with them.
Also the price diferennce between the 150 and the 200 is eglible, go with the 200 if you're going hpdi.

I have twin 250’s on mine. When it is time to re power I am definitely going with the 4’s. Everyone I know who has swapped to them love them.

$10,500 for each 150....forget that. Go with the HPDI's or Suzzuki/Johnson 140's for about $15k a pair.

That price on the 150 HPDI's is excellent, WAY below market, compared to what Evinrude or Merc DFI's cost. If true, sounds like a hard to beat deal.

I have a 25 outrage, had twin 150´s yamahas, great engines, I went with 2x115´s Merc´s four stroke, I could´nt be happier, go with the four strokes! it´s worth the extra money.

Something is goofy with those Yamaha prices.
The MSRP on the 150 HPDI is $500 more than the F150. I've never seen a pair of F150s sell for MORE than a pair of 150 HPDIs.
