Re: 2 stroke

 

I doubt very much that the traditional carbureted 2-stroke 9.9-15 HP would return due to the current EPA emission regulations.

 

There has been talk over the years about a 9.9-15 E-TEC design but it would be heavier and much more expensive than other 9.9-15 HP outboards available today, but it is feasible. 

 

If a new model E-TEC is introduced, you can read about it here.

Re: 2 stroke

It would be the best 9.9 out there if they did release an etec version of it
Even if it is more money than the others it would be almost fail proof and less maintenance than a four stroke

The 9.9 and 15 HP outboard family was  in production from 1974 through 2007.  The stricter EPA regulations doomed that immensely popular carburetor-equipped 2-stroke outboard.

Re: 2 stroke

It seems I have been seeing guys running around with an Evinrude 9.9 four stroke kicker this year. It looks very similar to the mercury pro-kicker but with Evinrude cowling.. Can someone direct me to where I can find some information on this?

 

Thanks
