    I did it for approx $28K I kept the original Bravo 2. I think I saved $800-1000 in fuel last summer.

    That is exactly who I went through. It turned out to be a good combo. Lighter than the 7.4 same speed and almost twice the fuel economy. Sorry about your loss.

    Hi, didn’t happen to purchase your FNM 300 and have installed by the dealer In Wasilla did you? I purchased an FNM 300 for my 2859 but lost boat in storage accident and sold engine back. I believed the combination would have been great and am glad you seem to find it so! This time around am thinking outboards so thanks for the note.

    No not looking for one now. I went all out and built a 496 with aluminum heads, intake and exhaust plus i removef the 180lbs of concrete from the port side under the water heater shelf. More power less rear weight. Approx 400lbs removed from the stern with approx 425 to 450 hp. All for the same reason fritzman stated..........i cant leave things alone and love to try to improve over stock!lol

    love the twin 300 outboards ruffryder!!!! Perfect!

    The cost is all relative to the labor you are willing to kick in your self. In my case I installed a 6.5 turbo from Peninsular and a Bravo III X drive my hunch is in the 35+ range, but I am one that needs to change thing just because
