On my 1995 Trophy 2002 I have a 1996 Force 120HP. From the research I did, this years motor measured the HP at the power head, and not the prop like newer motors, so I am really only getting around 95-100 HP at the prop. The current motor is weighing in at about 300 pounds. Would a newer 150HP that measures 150 HP at the prop be okay for the boat? Transom is sturdy and strong. I know the label says 175HP MAX, but I wanted to get others opinions before looking further into this. Another question, if I keep my Force 120 (Good compression against all cylinders), is there any way I can tweak the motor or replace some parts to make it stronger? Thanks for the help.

A newer 150 will do just fine...Just any brand will be fine..Deep six that Force. A 4 str is going to be heavier,but what you gain in overall performance will make it worth it. Evinrude E-Tec's are gaining a huge following.
