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

 Your engine is the regular 150 HP, not the HO model. Yours has essentially the same gear ratio as the high-performance HO L2 gearcase.

Thanks, I realize it's not an HO model and my understanding they are no longer available in the 150 hp G1. My question is specific to it's max hp regardless of the rpm it's reached at. Can you devulge if it is the same as the factory Dynograph done back in 2007-2008 time frame.

I believe there was a slight change in the dyno curve with or after the 2012 models because of the revised EPA emission gathering procedures that were implemented.

Re: 2017 150 HP G1

One more thing sir. Can you tell me what Service Manual I need for the above model and is this the most current model ? I forgot to look for a manufactured date before I dropped it off at the Marina. I read you stopped using dates and go by model or serial number. I have a 2007 Service manual but assume there has been changes although probably minor, thanks.
