200 etec g2 speed at WOT.

I purchased a new, old stock etec g2 200. First day we had it out, and tested it at WOT shortly. 47mph we could hit. Kept getting water in fuel alarms, and boat would go into limp mode. Dealer drained gas and changed probes on sensor and that seemed to solve problem, but i seem to have lost about 4 mph off of my top speed, any ideas as to why? Only answer they seem to be able to give me is it is still in break in period, and is getting extra oil at higher rpms, but this shouldn't result in a loss of top speed.... any help is greatly appreciated.

Re: 200 etec g2 speed at WOT.

We need additional information before we can even offer a suggestion to you.

What boat, size, weight, and top speed before and after?

What top rpm before and after?

What propeller make, model, and pitch?

What is the engine model number?

Re: 200 etec g2 speed at WOT.

It is on an older alumacraft 185 competitor, i know, over powered...... transom is reinforced and the boat handles it nicely. Top RPM before and after stayed the same ar around 6100-6200 rpm. We have tried a 22 pitch viper, and now a 24 pitch raker without any noticable difference in top speed..... 2017 etec g2 200. I am wondering if maybe one of my injectors isn't functioning properly.

Because you say the boat is overpowered, we are unable to assist you. An authorized Evinrude dealer should not have installed an engine larger than what the boat manufacturer stated as safe. You may also be in violation of state laws, depending on where you reside.

The Alumicraft Competitor 185 is rated for a maximum of 150 HP currently.
