Default Eickert 675's

My friend has a 35 fountian and does not belong to this board, so I am posting this for him. He is looking to repower his boat and asked me about the Eickert 675 blower motors. I saw that there are a few Active Thunders going with this power and a Powerplay. I am looking for some feedback on these motors for him in terms of reliability, idle characterisitcs, blower whine, etc. Thanks.
