Yamaha 150 HPDI

7 posts in this topic

I have a Yamaha on my Bass Boat and would like to get more speed out of it. It looks like the 150 to 200 HP Yamahas have the same head and carburation. Could I put a new chip in to make it faster? I appreciate the help.

Jim,
What's the max hp rating of your boat?
Send me an email, I might have a deal for you.

Cant help with any mod to the chip. If it is possible you would also need a different prop.
How are your RPMs at WOT? Are they in the recommended range? Do you have a jackplate? How bout the height of the cavitaion plate in relation to the keel of the boat? Lifting the motor up a notch may give you higher speeds.

These guys are on the right track with the jackplate and prop. I wouldn't suggest any tampering or tuning on the motor. Unlike a 4-stroke or a car engine, even modifying the air cleaner can change the fuel mixture, and burn up your motor.

Just thought of something else. One avenue you could try is to check with your Yamaha dealer. They may know if there are any modifications or parts that can be added. That way, too, if there is a problem, you didn't void any warrenty by tampering with it. If they are involved, at least you've got someone to fall back on.

    • Same ol story. The Liberals cant handle defeat. Like when Gore lost and Kerry lost. They just cant handle that there are people outside of NY and California and that they own guns, drive pick ups and vote.
    • My brother-in-law is serious about his whiskey, and he usually drinks either Crown or Pendleton.  My wife has drank Windsor for years.     Can't stand the stuff myself - probably got sick from overloading on it in my younger days.  Strictly beer for me - preferably a good craft beer, but normally Grain Belt or Schell's if it's available.    
    • Their, there. I was.  Not overly excited by anything I saw. Did get to shoot the Gearhead bow and was fairly impressed. Some uniqueness to this bow, and completely reversible right to left so dealers should like that as far as reduced inventory they must carry.  And the lightest crossbow out there. The new Halon shoots extremely well but like its predecessor just too heavy for my taste.  The Bowtech Reign felt pretty good, but again nothing special.  Everyone makes a roto molded cooler, trail camera, and broadhead nowdays. Liked the cast aluminum tree stands from Rivers Edge at a better price point than others.  Hawk is making some neat treestands and accessories. Goldtip was doing a demo bending their arrows vs other brands and was quite amazing how much farther theirs would bend before breaking, and how much their arrow recovered (would not take a set) after bending vs the other brands. I might switch just because of the durability and straightness factor. Got to hold the new world record Tennessee non-typ.  That's a lot of horn.
    • Therefore, if there is no point in making a point, that makes it a moot post to make a point that there is no point. so I'd like to point out that I find this entire dialogue pointless.    Sillytown has run amuck. 
    • Ayup. They asked me to take his place, but I can't stand Rawlings.    http://www.gasmonkeygarage.com/yes-aaron-the-bearded-wonder-is-leaving-gas-monkey-garage/
    • That does look like a fun day!
    • What? This can't be. Aaron's the real car building brains of this show. Richard is just the clown. Together they made it work. Apart?
    • It's catch-22.   The point is that there is no point.
