    Whats your budget? New or used motor? Do you care if its 2 or 4 stroke?
    If you can, put the biggest OB on there that you can. Its rated for a 225 (OBJet).
    4 stroke- go Yamaha. Suzuki are great, but you can't get a jet pump for over 140 Hp.
    2 stroke DI- ETEC or Optimax.
    Lots of great deals around on big, carbed 2 strokes if you don't mind going that way. You could probably get into a 175-200 2s for under 5K, and considering a new 4s or DI 2s is going to be 13k+, well, that buys lots of gas.

    Default Bigger is better!

    A guy can never have too much HP and being underpowered just plain ole' sucks! If you are running a jet most of the time, this is especially true. Happy Hunting!
