04 90 johnson 4 stroke?

5 posts in this topic

i have a 2004 90 4 stroke i was talking to a guy the other day and he told me that it is the same motor as the 115 with smaller injecters. is there any truth to this? if so can i just swap out injecters and have a 115 or is it not that simple? in the book they seam to have the same specs.

I think the guy is full of it. Find out what the part # is for injectors for your 90hp and find out what the part # is for the injectors on a 115. They are more than likely the same part #. Fuel injectors are rated to flow so many gallons per hour. The camshaft and the compression ratio is probably where the power comes from, could also be a higher hp engine tune also.

And I've heard that the 115 is the same as the 140 so then the 90 would be the same as the 140 with only changing a couple of parts!

Uh, don't think so.

actually i did a little more research and found that they are the same motor. displacement is 119 ci but different ecm's. if they are the same displacement and preaty much the same motor why is one max rpm's 5500(90) and 6000(115)? just curiouse if anyone knows. and the 140 has a 125 ci displacement so that is a whole different motor.

If it has a different ECM then thats part of the power difference. The 115 has a tune to help enhance power. The 115 probably has a more aggressive cam profile than the 90 which will increase power. It will more than likely be way too costly to warrent upgrading the power to 115hp.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
