2017 150 HP G1

I was told.by a marina that Evinrude is using the same computer tune in a new 150 G1 that was used in 150 HO G1 because they discontinued the HO in the 150 HP. Is there any truth to that ? Are the 150 G1's putting out closer to 160 ish ?

Same computer "box" but different software.

Re: 2017 150 HP G1

So is it safe to say that 150hp is it's max hp ? Not sure why they told me it's similar to the 150 HO was.

Also, I am researching a prop starting point and was curious if my new 150 G1 has the same lower unit gearing as my 2007 115 G1 or very close ?

Thanks
