    Exclamation Engine posts in APPROPRIATE FORUM, Please

    Folks:

    It will help you to receive faster, and more accurate responses if you will post your questions in the appropriate forum:

    For discussions related to 2.0/ 2.4/ 2.5L motors (Carb, EFI, Optimax or Racing).

    For discussions related to 3L motors (including Carb, EFI, Optimax, XS and ProXS)

    Some renaming might help get questions in the right places. Maybe something like...
    Mercury Motors - Under 135HP 2-Stroke
    Mercury - 2.0L/2.4L/2.5L & Related High Performance 2-Stroke
    Mercury - 3 Liter & 3 Liter High Performance 2-stroke
    Mercury - 4-Stroke & Verado

    Would that go over?

    That would be wonderful... although some "searches" may be affected as there are many, many thousands of posts in the various forums from years gone by.

    In time... perhaps. In the meantime- we'll go by the displacement of the engine, and all fourstrokes go in the 4-Stroke & Verado forum.

    Seems like the high performance label is what throws most people. The way the section reads it leads one to believe it's the high performance section because it doesn't say.........AND high performance. I think if you added the "and" or just got rid of the high performance it would clear things up for newcomers. Just a thought.


    1995 Allison XB-2003 225 Super Mag. It's slow and I'm ok with that.
    2002 Trans Am. It's not quite as slow.

    NOTE: If your engine is 150 HP or More, OR a 4-stroke engine, it BELONGS IN ONE OF THE OTHER FORUMS.

    Thanks!
