04 90 johnson 4 stroke?

Recommended Posts

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.

    • try them before you knock them....
    • we've only  used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run
    • That is crazy nice Hoey.  😎   But for $3,400 I'll just keep my dirt flakes on the floor and may be pick up another used sled or wheeler! 😋
    • Yes, its a 110v motor. I would've preferred 12v also but not a big deal since all my 110v outlets can be fed from an inverter so they are powered whether the generator is running or not. I think what you mentioned with the single shaft between them will be the ticket. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
    • When I was a kid, we came across a small flock of pigeons along a railroad track while grouse hunting. Shot three and my mom put them in a crockpot with other ingredients and, although I prefer grouse, they weren’t bad. 
    • You should get the 30 amp power cord if you don't have one already. You can use the 30 amp power cord adapter(30 amp female to 15 amp male) for home use. Otherwise when at the campground plug the 30 amp power cord into the 30 amp receptacle.  Now your set for any situation.     Your 20 amp receptacle is protecting the wire from receptacle to breaker panel. Besides running the AC, your running a refrigerator, 110v receptacles, and convertor.  A 16 gauge extension cord is no good.

    • I did see Menard's had the 0 Degree when I was in there last night.  Not sure what kind of tip connection you may have though?  A last resort if you have a Dremel tool is to try and auger it out with one of their metal tips?  But that may be a long-many Beer day! 🤤
    • I feel like if the power washer works, it's going to be the easiest and most fun way of removing that stuff.     $7 on Amazon.
