As stated earlier, there are improvements too. Just as the electronics in our home & office PC's have advanced and become smaller packages, so have the electronics (microprocessor) in our engine management system. The improvements Bombardier initiated to the Engine Management Module (EMM) beginning with 2002 production, such as a 30% thicker pc board and increased cooling for components, have been designed into the EMM for the Evinrude E-TEC outboards. Additionally, our Engineering Team has incorporated diagnostic LED's into the housing, allowing basic troubleshooting to be performed without diagnostic software. A flexible casing and 60% smaller size complete the package and provide a clean, state of the art, under-hood appearance.
