Like Martin, I had (Have) the stingray junior on my Mariner 15 2 stroke/Honwave 3.8ie, huge improvement for me. Same motor on the F-Rib 360 not sure if required but no negatives. Tohatsu 20 efi - not needed, jumps on the plane so fast I couldn't believe it first time (even with the wheels still down _ oops! - documented in a previous thread)
Why am I here - I should be in my boat fishing!!

Great to here you found a vast improvement too.
I found it hard to explain how much of a difference the stingray made, it’s kinda to the point where people wouldn’t believe you lol..
Awesome edition in my opinion, but I can only comment on the T38ie as it did nothing for the Frib, as you would expect.
I do think there’s a lot of crap out there tho, the stingray does the job, dole find on a whole don’t seem to get that wow response.
Spend a little more and buy the right thing from the start in my opinion.
F-RibsAndSibs.Com.... :whistle
Because it's a big old WWworld out there :mrgreen:
