Hi I'm new to this site and to etec
Just bought a cdory with twin 06 90s. Had mercurys before
Why should I get software for the engines. What is the advantages of having my own software? Just bought a service manual for them. Even with the manual can only do simple maintenance and trouble shooting
Would it be benifichel to have the software

Welcome Jim, and IMO 'Absolutely' get the software (and connection cable)!  As you read/skim through the Service Manual, you will see many tests referring to the EV Diag software.  Also, you can get History reports which can help pinpoint a lot of 'early symptoms' before they become expensive problems.

Notice that it's usually asked on here to give Model and Serial Numbers, and quite often to post a PDF file of your History Report.

Unless you have deep pockets and a dealer who can always get to you quickly, you'll save hours, days, and weeks, not to mention the cash for the Dealer tech's "wrenching" time.

Call Barnacle Bill's, the Sponsor of this great site with Model and Serial at hand, and they'll fix you right up for all of your needs.
