Re-powering 2005 Ranger 169 Ghost?

BFISHNBFISHN Posts: 5 Greenhorn
Ranger,

Currently I have a Yamaha 90 2 stroke on my 2005 Ranger Ghost 169. I might need to re-power it, are there any issues with putting an F90 on the boat? Any specs or performance numbers available?

    Can't give you much detail , but I had a 2006 with a f90, my friend had an identical boat with a 90 etec. His ran a bit faster , better hole shot, and the stern didn't squat down as much. I was a touch quieter.......and had to do oil changes.

    I have a 90 ETec on my 2006 Ghost and it runs great. Good hole shot with 4 blade prop and get 35MPH with full load. Maintenance has been minimal.
