Default 621 with 250 V-rod vs 300?

Looking for the performance differences that I would see between a 250 Verado and the 300 Verado on a 2011 Ranger 621. WOT? Holeshot?
Would any of you with experience say that the 250 V-Rod is underpowered on this hull?

It seem like if you jump up 25hp as a rule you seem to get a couple more mph. Jumping up 50 ponies could be huge even though they are using the same block on on all their six cylinders models. I think if proped right, the 250hp will push it fine..........

Your gonna save a few bucks but it will show up in your performance. The 250 will work, but in order for that hull to perform to it's full potential you've gotta go with the 300. It'll be about 8-10mph slower. You can prop it to get out of the hole better but that will only slow you down more. It'll be a bit of a pig in big water as well.

Guys will tell you they have a 250 and it works great...and I'm not arguing that. It'll just work better with a 300. Gotta try and max out the hull on any boat if you can. Or downsize. Huge difference on resale as well. All IMO of course.

Why wouldnt you get the 300. If you can justify the money for a 621 you can certainly afford the 300. Last I checked them things can go between 60-70k. I must be missing something here. Nothing like having a $70,000 boat thats underpowered.

Yes, you are missing something here. The boat is used and has the 250 V-Rod on it already. I posted this because I have a friend that is interested in the boat, but thanks for your concern.

Just my opinion. Its alot of boat and IMHO needs all the Hp it can get. Good luck whatever he chooses. Thats one heck of a rig either way.

Default I'd take one!

I'd take a rig like that and be darn proud to have it! Especially if the price is right! Who cares that you can only go 50 instead of 55? You'd look really good going 50 and 98% of the people on the lake that day would say "Man I hope I can get in a rig like that some day"! Just one fat guys opinion!

Modog,

I believe that several pros ran the new 621 with 250s in the 2010 season before the HP limit was upped in FLW.

If the price is right I would be proud to own it as well. When the warranty is up he could swap in a 300 ecu if he wasn't happy with the performance.

Do not believe it is possible to swap ecu units to up horsepower. Lots of other stuff on those engines that are different than just that.

If the second generation Verados are designed like the first generation ones were then the only difference in the powerhead between the 225 and the 300 will be the ecu mapping.
