Not much HP diff. between a 525 EFI and a 575 SCI, for what I've read and heard. That was one of the reasons that Merc. stopped making the 575 SCI. The 525 EFI is good motor, EXCEPT for the header leaking problem that they seem to have.
Good luck with your purchase, great time to be looking/buying.
