As far as I know, all of Mercs engines are rated at the prop.

Yeah but people put them infront of shaft or anersons too....but i guess merc would be justified in using all their own stuff.

I read somewhere that anything made by Mercruiser that isn't black is flywheel hp.
Don't know if it's true or not.

I heard the opposite. Black is flywheel, blue is prop.
