  • Suzuki/johnson DF140 on a 20' Mako????

    I am repowering my 1986 20' Mako and I am considering the DF140. Any input would be greatly appreciated. I stumbled across this website and thoroughly enjoy it. I have owned a Mako since 81 and several of my friends now own Makos. Thanks in advance for any info. Great website!!!!!

    I saw your post over on THT. My opinion about the motors is, I'm buying 2 of them.[]

      i can't speak about the df140 but i have a dt140 on my '79 mako20 and it pushes it just fine. i would not have thought it would do as well as it does. it did take 6 props to find the magical one but i'm happy with mine.....

        I repowered my 25'with a pair of them this April. I could not be happier. See my comments on Warthog's post titled "I spent some money today".

          I have a 20c with a suzuki df140. I've been really happy with it. Functional top speed is around 36 - 37 mph. I've had it up to 40 mph with a minimal load.
