    I have a 2007 merc bigfoot on a lowe roughneck 16' vtc.
    the best I can het is 8.5 mph. someone told me I can put a 15 hp carb on it. Is this possible and will increase speed if it is...sb

    not sure, but usually if they are the same motor, save for the carb, you can look up the specs on the manufacturer website. If the motors are the same weight for both hp rating, then usually the only difference is something simple like the carbs. I hope this makes sense.
