Question on Evinrude 90


New member
I recently bought a Predictor and this Evinrude 90 came with it. I'm not interested in keeping the engine as a new on is on the way, but I have some questions. The prior owner says that he rebuilt the engine with high performance parts and that it runs well. Here is what he sent me as to what he did to it. Is this something worth while or is it crap?

That engine has been bored out 30 over . And re sleeved. It has forged Wiseco racing Pistons. The block has been ported 4 high flow. The heads are milled for high-compression. Polished and balanced racing crank. Exhaust tube has been shortened and opened up. The lower unit has been drilled out to let the exhaust out before it goes through the prop. For higher acceleration at lower speeds. Bigger carburetors with bigger Jets. Advanced timing. The engine runs just fine on 90 tes pump gas. It does have more power if you use 115 leaded racing gas. But it's not necessary
