Default how reliable are the mercury xs 275 engines

thinking of uping the power on my skater..i bought it with suzukies 175 four strokes ..shes very reliable and doesnt burn any fuel at all..last week i did over 100 miles and only burn 30 gallons of fuel. with the suzukies ill get about 70mph out of it but thinking of going a little faster. my main thing is reliablity.
greatful for any feed back.
thanks

Contact racer x-6 on the board. He has a pair of 250xs motors for $11,500 each that are still under warranty. His name is Eric and the shop # is (601) 798-3688. He also has the hydraulic steering setup for them that you are going to need.

Also, I have a set of L&R 15x32 props if you need them when you get the new engines.

Dunno. I didn't know they made a 275 either, but he ran a Skater with 175s... Might be some kind of foreign thing.

This is by far the most interesting thing about it. WHY?
