    Etec 225 HO lemon

    Hi Guys,I need help here. I bought a 2005 Ranger Z20 with a 2009 225Ho in december 2011. Took it out 4 times and the lower unit blew on it. I brought it to the dealer and they said the warranty had just expired 2 months before but Evinrude would replace it as an act of good faith. Still cost me close to a 1000.00 for labour and a new prop. And then the tech tells this is one of there defects.... The thing they did not tell me is that i was going to loose 5 mph.... I sent many hours trying to find the speed back but in vein... At 300 hours I got it serviced and ask if everything was ok. The dealer told me that everythng was good(compression and etc..) Changed the seal on the lower unit, I came out with a 800.00 bill. The dealer told me that my engine was running on a higher oil/fuel mixture wich was good. The previous owner was running xd100 and i kept doing the samething. Last time out, I am not running for 10 mins and ther engines stalls at high speed and as a hard time starting...I brought it to the dealer and he tells now that the engine is blown... and its going to cost 10000.00 to fix... The worst is that he tells me its cylinder 2 and its normal for Etec. I really got a lemon...
