Sorry to post this on class whaler side: There are a couple dozen newer 130 Sports around here with factory-installed 25hp Mercs. Our small lake is pretty small and is limited to 25hp maximum. The <2006 25hp Mercs just don't seem to "cut the mustard".
Has anyone repowered their >2000 130 Sport with a different 25hp motor and found improvements? I have seen one with a 1999 Suzuki 2-stroke 25hp and one with a heavier 2003 Suzuki 4-stroke 25hp.
Any other suggestions in the 25hp range? Has anyone tried the new 2007 Suzuki 25V or new 2007 Mercury 25hp?

I don't think you're going to see significant improvement by re-powering, how much difference could it make if you're limited to the 25 hp max?
When you say it doesn't meet your needs, be more specific. What are you using it for, what are the problems you're running into. With that info folks might be able to make some other suggestions as well.
