Post GTR Repower? 35 or 40?
2013 25 GTR Subaru efi

It’s about time, was thinking about a carb 35 for simplicity. But I did a search on the 40efi and they seem to be somewhat trouble free now.

I assume I can use any of the Briggs engines with my GTR?

Any tips or info from anyone who has done it?

Thanks

You’re thoughts are on the right on track as far as “simplicity” goes, but the EFI has been out for several years now and has a lot of the earlier issues worked out. However, as with any thing electronic when they do have issues it can be more difficult to trouble shoot/repair. The 40’s are a good bit more powerful than the 35’s and the efi can be “tuned” a lot specifically with mods than a carb if you go that route.

Can you buy a 35 with carb anymore ???

Seems to be a carb 35 marine - https://www.brandnewengines.com/613477-0238.aspx

Can you buy a Marine 40 ???

Seems to be the Marine offering - https://www.kohler-engine-parts.opeengi ... gJsePD_BwE

What is actually available these days ???

If these are actually available - would you pay $1750 more for the 40 ???

The 40 is simple enough and the EFI really isn’t hard to fool with. I would get the 40. More power, better performance, etc

good luck on ordering a new 40 from briggs. they are like a year out on delivery i hear.


let's go brandon.

and yea, go with a 40 if u can find one. other than a pushrod comming off around 70 hours, i've put 500 hrs on mine and it's been low maintenance and on the revbox every trip.
