17 inch Mercury Enertia Prop WTB or Swap

 Gents and gals

 

I have a 250 Verado with a Mercury Enertia 15P prop. Brilliant prop and it gained me 3 knots and 15% beter fuel consumption than the 15P Mirage Plus Prop that the motor originally came with, which I still have as a spare. 

 

I am now flashing my Verado 250 up to 345 hp (YEAH BABY!), so will be needing a 17P prop. Preference is for a Mercury Enertia ECO 17P but a standard Mercury Enertia 17P prop would also be OK. 

 

Anyone got a 17P prop they want to sell or have a 17P that is a bit overpropped for the motor that you want to swap for a 15P. 

 

Cheers

 

John

Given the bigger Verados recommend a higher Octane rating are you going to have to use premium or still using standard unleaded.

Watching with interest please keep us posted on the results.

 I am getting a 300 hp flash

Fri, 2018-06-15 18:50

 I am getting a 300 hp flash tune that will work fine with our standard unleaded (91 ROn, 87 Octane USA). Also gettign a 345 hp flash tune that will need 95 RON (91 USA Octane). 

 

Just waiting for the flash dongle to arrive. I can use that dongle to do other motors, but you will need to pay for the tune from Simon Motorsport in the USA as it is specific to each ECU serial number.  I will probably want to recoiup some of the dongle cost if someone else used it, but cheaper than buying one like I did. 

 

You can flash a 225 up to 345 !!!!!! 225 - 300 hp Gen 2 Veraodos are all identical mechanically. 

 

Will let you know how I go.....

 i imagine these tunes are common in the states? they must be ticking all the boxes.

 ive always wondered about retuning outboards, surely its similar to small cars, motorbikes......
