Well When the rig was on B & O you had a better view of the Box & it had Side and Nose intakes - hence TQ master
Sportmaster Nose only
Fleetmaser or what ever it's called is the salt water HD box for heavier boats (purfect for C*%^&on) with slightly different Gear bearings and other bits otherwise the two are pretty close

Do they? thats not what i heard. Unless you recieved your engine before dec 31st then it has no warranty as the 300XS doesn't meet the emissions standards and therefore is deemed a race engine

They state that,
but as fare as all the promax's, just like the the new xs 300 that I have recently bought, you only get 2 years,though Mercury state that there is a one year optional extended warranty, but all I got from UK dealers was(Sorry only 2 years!) unless you live in the good old usa, the option is given no problem!, but forget it over here, unless your tickling someone in the right place's

Plase correct me if Im wrong? though I dont rearly give a shit anyway.
