EFI or Carbed? Been keeping an eye out for 200hp evinrude myself for miata or porsche 944/924/914 swap. Way cool dude.

Did not know if it was carb or EFI untl today. While it might seem strange that I would not know something like this the reason is that after several CL failures we ended up buying a boat from someone "within the family"' like buying a bike from someone who one of you buddies knew all about the life it lived.

It is a Johnson Oceanmaster with carbs. Little back story. I am the kiss of death to every little outboard I ever had! So I didn't want to "touch my son's engine. Well he ran the tank dry and to get it running used an old tank with ethanol fuel. BIG MESS. It turns out that the big engines are a dream to work on compared to small ones. Drained the 6 bowls and got the good stuff pumped through all. First outboard I ever touched that ran better after I touched it. Maybe the curse is broken! :o :o :o 

While 4 strokes do have their place in marine outboards it is still a line of BS on how superior they are. A 200 4S cannot give the performance of a 200 2S. But they won and no more 2S outboards :( :(.

Well a carbed 2 stroke is like an old Detroit Diesel. What was once old and outdated is now prized for it' simplicity and reliability. Kinda like old gas cans that can actually pour gas unlike the eco dooky cans sold today!

Yeah the carbed ones are extremely easy to work on and there are parts on ebay as well to rebuild them. The issue is the cost. A brand v6 200hp 2 stroke is in the $10k+ region.
