I’m just about to repower my Gulfstream and have it boiled down to the Suzuki D300 or D350A. It seems the dealer wants to sell me the D300 over the D350. Does anyone have this set up? If so can you tell me your thoughts?

Looks good! What year is your GS? Where did you get your motor? I'm looking at getting a 300 for my 24 once I derig and sell the old motor. Worried about the bracket being rated for such a bump in weight as well.

Loosechips.....A friend has ordered a new DF350 to replace the f250 on his Gulfstream. What pitch propeller did you find to be the right one for this application? Also, any other words of wisdom you may have about this repower.
Thanks.

Hi there -

I own a 1999 GW which the previous owner put a V8 350 on without any research.... I came to find out from GW yesterday that this engine is too torquey for the 1999 transom!

I'm looking at a repower. What year is the boat in the picture that you repowered with the Suzuki 350? Seems like you're happy with it

What kind of performance are you getting? I haven't seen any formal testing #s

Hi Bill,

You were correct I haven’t been active on the site and was not notified of the message. I hope your buddy is loving his 350, I sure do. I did change up the prop from a 21 pitch to a 19.5 for a little more top end. Going from a 225 to the 350 sure made a difference.

Hope he is loving the engine !

Mine is a 2003
