Evinrude 225 60 degree engine specs
hello I recently became aware that evinrude makes two different 225HP engines a 60 degree and a 90 degree the 90 being a jumbo sized engine.
I have a 2004 Johnson 175HP I believe it is a 60 degree it's weight is 373LBs.
I'm interested in upgrading to a 225HP to a newer engine (not the G2 but the white etec) but don't want to increase the weight to much.
maybe you could explain to me the differences in the 60/90 engines.
also I would like to reuse my BRP binnacle and control cables is this possible.

Your 2004 175 HP is a 60° engine but Evinrude does not make 60 ° in a 225 HP
The 225 is a 74° V6 block. Only the 200 hp is a 66° block and the 200 HO is a 74° block
