    solid as a piece of granite. They do vapor lock if it has the VST. have seen them go 800-900 hours without a rebuild. If you run it out quite a bit then refresh the heads every 300 hours.

    as he said solid as a rock if they have the vst they do vapor lock after or during a long idle, but there is ways around that

    The 2000 is not a VST motor its cool fuel,,, much better,,,,, darn thing will run 1000 + hours taken care of.

    I would guess upper 60's low 70's in a 27'
    IF YOUR UNDER CONTROL,,,,,YOUR NOT GOING FAST ENOUGH !!!!

    They tend to use a little oil, but I reduced the oil consumption on mine by switching to mobil 1 15-50.

    2000 engines have cool fuel and don't have the vapor locking problem. Mine have 320 hrs and run perfect.

    I have 1997 502 mags with about 370 hours and still run great.
    Other than maintenance the only thing I had to do is replace both engine
    water recirculating pumps because they were leaking.
