    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 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.

      Well everybody, I know it's very long overdue, but this article will be published tomorrow night. Usually I am very timely with feature content, but this was a very unique undertaking for me.

      When I first had the idea to present a detailed insight into the E-TEC and its beginnings, I had never imagined how deep this would go. I thought I knew a lot about the E-TEC, but I ended up learning a great deal through this experience. And so, the more I became involved in this project, the more interesting it became for me, but also, the more I realized that I needed to widen the scope of my feature article to tell a complete story. And that thought process repeated itself over and over, and I felt it was better to introduce this late, than to have it anything less than comprehensive, yet interesting.

      I really think this will be interesting to everybody, not just Evinrude/OMC enthusiasts. It's a great story and it gave me a far greater understanding of exactly what the E-TEC is.

      I invaded my vault of all of the media materials I've amassed over the last 15+ years. I save everything from every show and event, and yes, I really like those Evinrude fishing lures!

      I really appreciate your patience while this fell behind schedule multiple times. I hope it will be worth the delays.

      Merc were still selling in the front injection after 2000 so there was some margin not to go to DFI straight away.
      Just imagine a OMC kit for v6 conventional injection...
