    hello i have a 1988 mercury 9.9 it runs great but i'd like a little more power so im looking to convert it to a 15. i've searched a ton and i've heard from sevral sources that all i need is a 15 carb but i've also seen from quite a few sources that i will need the carb plus intake manifold, exhaust tube/manifold. anyone with exiercence or knowledge on this please post id love to get a forsure awnser on this.

    thanks

    It would cost more to increase that one then it would to trade up or buy one out right.

    many people have already told me that but its extremely had to find a good used 15 for a reasonable price and since i can get used parts for dirt cheap and i'll be doing the work labour cost is not an issue so it shouldnt cost to much to do the convert
