no question 500 HP. Bigger,better,faster. Will help the resale someday also. You'll always wish that you "HAD".Otto

Between those two go with the 500efi, I had to make that decision 2 years ago, and I am soooo glad I went with the 500efi. Runs great sounds awsome and reliable, plus for resale they will hold their value much better.

without question go with the 500s...reliebility is a non-issue when comparing the two, so resale should be your biggest concern...and you'll get more out of it in the end with the 500s...not to mention the boat will be faster

depends on what plans you have. If you go with 496 with five year warranty so you can pull and put in big power. you wont have $30000 sitting on the floor in the back of the garage. If you going to run them, than get the 500's. 500s have a great looking whipple upgrade. if you run until warranty is finished, then add upgrade. You have to ask yourself were are you going to be in two to five years to make the smartest decsion.
