The 525EFI appears to be a great motor. Good power, operates on low octane fuel, closed cooling and should run for a couple hundred hours no matter how far and often the sticks are hammered. The blower motors make the big power but also put alot of stress on parts. It seems the EFI and screw style superchargers have brought marine supercharging to a new level. However, I think supercharging a motor is like juicing an athlete, sure they put up big numbers but most of the time the careers are shortened by injury.

You forgot to include the 350 MAG - one of the best engines out there.

Anyway, I picked the 525's for reliability, cost and the fresh-water cooling.

Any Opti-Max outboard would be my choice of O/B's.
The poll engines are the "Mercury Racing" brand of engines which can include the the hot rod outboards. Otherwise Mercury is outboards and Mercruiser is I/O for the family stuff.
