Considering a new motor for my '84 OR 18. Running a 115HP Ev. at 5000rpm gives me 37-38 mph by gps. Does anyone know the stats on increasing to a 150HP or a 115 4 stroke?

Howdy, 5th.

My crystal ball says that your OR-18 will go about 50 with ideal propping and setup of a 150, and about 39 with a F115. That assumes that you maintain your current approximately 2400lb gross weight.
