I know the new 6.2's are, but was the 2002 6.2 MX MPI Smartcraft compatible?

I drive a 2004 sea ray, for drinkin time, with a 6.2 and it has the smartcraft. So I would have to say atleast 2003

I would say model year 2002 based on the fact that there is a Smartcraft computer on serial numbers higher than 0M300000 on the 6.2. And the first 6.2 in model year 2002 has serial number 0M320614.
I just used www.mercruiserparts.com and a Mercruiser by serial number / model year document. So I hope it is correct.

It looks like best I can tell it was an option. It looks like you will have to buy a new computer to add it to the 2002 motors but it is really confusing. Probably have to guy a new harness as well? From what I Have always been told if you do not have it on a boat then don't think about adding/upgrading to it. The cost os so much that it is not worth it. Call Merc up for the best advice.....

Yep - if I couldn't just "plug and play" it then I wasn't going to add it, like you said - just not worth the time and $$.

Thanks for all the info.
