Does anybody have information about the 60-HP E-TEC?

Also new is a 2 cylinder 70 hp. All have the same specs, 40, 50, 60, 70. 52.7 ci and 235 lbs. Have not seen them yet.

A 2 cylinder 70? It would have about the same displacement as my dirty carbureted 3 cylinder Yamaha 2-stroke yet be Carb 3-Star rated and weigh about the same. That is very interesting.

Interesting indeed, never heard about 70-HP with the 2-cyl. block. Thought they only make the 40-50-60HP with the small powerhead as there is a 75HP with the same displacement 3-cyl. as the 90HP.
Where did you get that info?
I'm looking for an engine (or motor?;-)for a 15 footer, so that would probably be the perfect match.

The 2 banger Evinrude E-TEC 70hp is marketed as a light economical engine compare to the 3 banger 75 (or heavier 4-strokes). You will see it on the smaller Ranger flats boats, on pontoons, and small runabouts. It is pictured in the 2005 Evinrude brochure.

I wonder what a 2-cylinder 70-HP engine would be like in terms of vibration?

Probably better than a single cylinder 35hp, but not as good as a 4 cylinder 140 :)

Jim, should the vibration of a 2 cylinder 70 be any different than the vibration of the 2 cylinder 40, 50 or 60 E-TEC? Should it be any different than the vibration of the 2 cylinder 40, 50, 55 or 60 made by OMC starting 30+ years ago? I would think that any of those outboards would give a fairly good approximation of the most vibration you might expect to see in the 70 HP variant.

If the vibration of the E-TEC 70 is anything like the vibration of the 1987 48 SPL I use to have on my 15 SuperSport, it will be WELL within acceptable limits and it might actually be smoother than my current 3 cylinder Yamaha 70. It's been my experience that a direct injected 2-stroke is usually smoother (less vibrations at frequencies people find annoying) than its carbureted counterpart.

What would be the advantage of 2 cylinder 60Hp E-tec (DFI) over, say, Mercury and Yamaha's super smooth 4 cylinder, 248#, 60 HP 4-stroke EFI? Will the DFI accelerate faster?
