Default Merc #3 vs BMAX

Looking for some advise, Thinking of putting twin 725's on a 4300 NORTECH, I know if I use the #3 it has a tranny which robs HP, but is it more reliable than the BMAX. Thanks Jeff

2nd Q's. Would this boat W/Triple 525's and xr's last, Im concerned on the drive issue, Thanks Jeff
