I have just completed a complete repower of my 1990 2556. I replaced the 454 Bravo 2 with a mercruiser 383 mag Seacore, Seacore transom assy and Bravo 3 out drive. Also added Merc Eco gauges.

Net results were an improvement in every category.

Planning
Top speed
Economy

This package out performs the 454 in every way.

I run a heavy loaded boat as well.

Welcome to BOC.

Glad to hear the results were all positive. I have always thought what you would lose is torque would be made up with the weight reduction.
