I recently repowered my 2015 2520XLD with a Suzuki DF 300APXX (30"). It replaced my Yamaha F300UCA. This engine pushes my boat better than the Yami ever did. I still don't have the ideal prop as the dealer first put on a 3x16x18.5 watergrip prop but it only made 5200. He wanted to then use a 3x16x17 but only had a 3x151/2x17 to get me back in the water until the new prop showed up. I just finished my 10 hour break in and my numbers have greatly improved over the Yami. Seems like the sweet spot right now with this prop is 5200 rpm which gives me 30-32 mph and a 2.1 mpg fuel burn. I am very happy so far and if anyone is in the same situation I suggest you pull that trigger and go for it. 17 months later the Yamaha that was ordered still has yet to arrive and I think it will never happen, especially after this hurricane has come through. I sold the Yami with all the rigging for 8k which had 2285 hrs. I will update as I go along, especially after I get the 16x17 prop strapped on.
