    1996 Johnson 225 venom Mechanic/shop rebuild needed Houston tx...sugestions please.

    Lost the number 2 pin last weekend and I want to do a total rebuild now. I am looking for recommendations on a shop to send it out to (as my wife is getting mad at me spending all my time on my boat). I would like to do some upgrades to get the most out of this motor but still keep it reliable, so I need suggestion there. I live in the Houston area but I am willing to ship the motor... I just want it done right.

    Thanks,

    I don't know how many Johnrudes he works on but I'm sure he could make about anything better than it was before, Jay Smith is down that way somewhere.

    I called them the other day but the guy on the other end said they don't work on anything that old, but I am going to give them another call...Who should I ask for? Also I am assuming they will be able to do water modification to help cool number 2? and any other suggestion you guys may have. I here you are one of the experts on these things, so I am open to any suggestion for best upgrades? since i am going to get it done.

    and thanks for your time.
