For my model-year 2010 E-TEC 225-HP engine, I recently collected data on the cooling system water pressure as a function of engine speed. The cooling system water pressure was measured by an electronic sensor and displayed on an I-Command gauge. The table below shows the observed cooling system water pressure in PSI, the engine temperature in degrees-Fahrenheit, and the recommended range of cooling system water pressure in PSI (taken from BRP literature):

Observed Cooling System Water Pressure
E-TEC 225

RPM     PSI RANGE   ENGINE TEMP RECOMMENDED PSI
750     3.8 - 4.4   180         3 - 5
1300    9.2 - 9.5   191         8 - 9
1300    9.0         195         8 - 9
1350    9.7         163         8 - 9
1400    9.6 - 9.8   189         8 - 9
3700    14.0        127         12 - 14
4200    13.7 - 15.4 129         13 - 15

The data show the engine cooling system was operating in the normal range, with a trend toward the high end of the recommended range.

Below is the recommended water pressure range for the 2010 E-TEC 225-HP:

RPM   PSI
Idle  3-5

4500 14-16
5000 15-17
5500 16-18

Hi Jim,
I just found this article and I have 2007 225 Etec that seems to be running hot. Cruising at 4500-5000 without a big load it runs about 160-170 degrees. With a load, it will go over 170, reaching 180 once. Water coming out of the pisser is cool, and once when the pisser became clogged, it ran cooler! I tried removing the pisser plug/angle thing and it overheated. My 2006 150 doesn't have one and it runs fine. Ideas? Thx.
