• Coming This Month: The Full Story of the Evinrude E-Tec

    Evinrude E-Tec: From The Very Beginning to Now

    This has been an article that I had planned to be published months ago, however as I was working on it, I realized there is just so much more to tell here than I had originally expected. I have probably not researched any product as much as this one, and I learned a great deal about the Evinrude E-Tec platform along the way. What was most stirring was how much I didn't know about the E-Tec, and most much information about it being discussed is just not accurate, or incomplete.

    This will be a very large article, and it is the result of my experience and research with the products, as well as detailed discussions with key people responsible for the E-Tec's vision and development. As I progressed with this project, I became more engrossed in it, because it is not only a truly fascinating story, but also a fascinating product.

    I really hope you will all enjoy it. I plan to have it published this month.

    Greg

      Great, I can't wait. A true engineering marvel from what I have seen. If they could just make them 400 lbs I would buy one today!

      Wow!

      I would love to see an interview the East German engineers who worked on the Ficht 2-stroke direct injection system that was going into the next generation Trabant, or get a little background on OMC's decision not to use the Orbital system...

      I think they worked out the high pressure atomisation was better than low pressure with air injection

      You apparently do not know anything about the etec or the new g2. Like most people on this site, why even leave your lousy comment?
