Word of caution on the older XR6 motors. They typically came with the small diameter gear case with 1.78:1 gearset. This is considered the fastest gear case in outboards when you put a nose cone on it. The bad news is the internals weren't as strong as the standard case, so look into the XR6 gear case very carefully. It's about $3600 to have Steckbaur (sp) rebuild it properly for you. It will be beefed up totally after he gets through with it, but it's still expensive. The newer XR6 motors come with the standard case, and some of the older ones did too if ordered that way.
I had a 1992 XR6 with the small gearcase on my 17' Pulse, and it ran like a raped ape.......

Raped Ape? Where do you come up with this stuff Jim? Has Barefoot Bob been teaching you something? Anyways, if you have the $ to invest in a good motor, a 2003 may be the way to go. Thats what I'd go, spend the money on a motor I wouldn't have to work on much so it'd save money in the long run, and would be worth more in resale!

By the time you spend 4-5 grand for the 150 in the first place, then stick more than 3 grand more into the gear case, you just wasted your money. To me, if you are going to spend 7-8- grand on a 150, put that towards a new one. I would take my time and look for a good used one. I will check around this week here 440. I have to go to a couple of dealerships this week to do some work and I will ask around.

Just a question 440, what is the ultimate motor you would like for your boat? That may help us look with you...

Now be careful fellas, I said to look at the XR6 gear case very carefully. It may be OK and not need work. He might very well be able to find a '92 - '94 XR6 in excellent shape for just a couple/few thousand dollars and get years of use out of it.............
