Long time reader - first post! Thanks everyone for all the great info here. I'm a first time boat buyer (or about to be) and looking at a couple options right now. I was 100% set on a 2003 Super Air Nautique Team but then found an 05 Tige 22V that also looks great and has my attention. The Nautique has a PCM Excalibur 330 and the Tige has a Merc MAG 350 MPI. Otherwise they're pretty similar - same-is hours, ballast, etc.

I have read (on this forum and many others) glowing reviews of the PCM 330 - but am having trouble finding info on the Merc...probably because it's used in so many other boats (stern drives) that it's hard to find something specific on wake / surf applications. I plan to use the boat primarily for surfing and wakeboarding - no skiing - any thoughts or advice on either engine? I'll be using the boat in Colorado at altitude...are the Merc and PCM significantly different in these applications? HP is about the same I think - but how about torque, reliability, etc?

Thanks!
