    Etec has it beat in low end torque, I love some mean holeshot myself.

    Pretty dumb to compare a 2 and 4 stroke.

    E-TEC competes against 4strokes, not other 2strokes

    I owned a 2010 150HO yes it does have more low end but dies on top!
    The Merc will run circles around the Etec 150 HO and do it with using less fuel & oil which optI oil is cheaper than XD100 which is fact.
    I have data to prove from my own real world use!
    I do own a 175 ProXS now and it it night and day better.
    Yes it is louder and 13 lbs. heaver but at leaSt it i don't half to worry about melting prop hubs and running hot and faulty OEM manufactured parts!
