  • Twin 200 Yamaha HPDI's for 2003 282?

    I have always been an OMC fan. I had 1991 150 silverstar Johnsons on a 1983 254. Those 13 year old motors now have 1800 hrs on the orginal power heads!!! I currently have twin 1999 225 Fichts on my 2003 282 Mako. Believe it or not the motors have been fine so far (270 hrs). I have the chance to purchase new 2005 twin 200 Yamaha HPDI's for a great price. Has any one had any trouble with 200 HPDI's? Most folks I talk to say the only problems are with the larger HPDI's (250, 300). Will 200's be enough power? Any info would be helpful in making my decision.

    Ive blown up three of the 200 hpdis. Two of them were blown up on the first trip out. I would go with twin 200 suzuki 4 strokes over pretty much anything right now or keep the power you have.

      Thanks for the info. I think the suzukis are good motors, but I do not have a dealer on the coast (Gulfport, MS.) Also with the transom questions on 282s, I believe less weight (475lbs. for 200 Yams) would be better (and less horse power). I personal believe that this is were Mako ran into trouble. They did not increase the strenght of the transom on these boats as the outboard weight approached 600 lbs. Just a though!!

        I had a pair of 2001 Yamaha HPDI's that I ran for over 400 hours and had NADA, ZERO, ZILCHO problems. They were truly great motors. Most people who have 200's will say the same thing. They have had some troubs with the 250-300's, but the 200's have been pretty damn good.

          They have workrd out the problems on the hdpi"s ,wrong oil caseing caused alot of the malcontent in the field,all indications are they are solid engines..We forget how many happy owners there are and realitivly speaking few problems unless you were fool enough like me to buy a fict!!I just dropped a chunk of change on a suzuki 4 stroke not a yamaha because i feel it just "fit" my 232 better and i liked the color![]THe tecnology is awesome on the new engines ,alot is plain ego and marketing..
