Etec G2 200 HO Garmin Autopilot

The Garmin 1.0 L autopilot pump is good for steering cylinder volumes up to 10 cubic inches
The 2.0 L pump is good for steering cylinder volumes from 10 cubic inches to 24 cubic inches
If I have twin G2 200 ho outboards with the selectable power steering option, can I get away with using the 1.0 L pump?
I don't want to use the Garmin Smart pump due to it being about double the price. Thanks.

Let me ask this question a different way: what is the steering cylinder volume of a single ETEC G2 200HO?

About the same as the popular Seastar cylinders and G2 can use the same autopilot

Garmin recommends to only use the 1.0L pump in single engine applications reguardless of the cylinder displacement.

Re: Etec G2 200 HO Garmin Autopilot

But what about the fact that both engines have power assist (power steering?)
