Mercury Verado


Recommended Posts

Any of you guy have any knowledge on the Mercury Verado?

After 4 years of frustration Mercury has finally determined that they cannot repair my Optimax with that I'm going back to a 4 cycle so I'm seeking info on a Verado or the new 150 EFI.

The Verado would be my choice but thats only because of the refinements done to the motor, but if you use it during cold weather I'd be VERY scared of a supercharged motor in freezing weather. I run an ETEC and love everything about it.

Spent two years in the Merc engine plant as lead QAE for the engine machining & assembly plant, & the tolerances are the same for Opti's, & Verado's. The question still stands:

What does supercharging have to do with cold/freezing weather?
