Read all about it here.
I love my E-tec, have three Mercurys (1 is a Yamaha clone) but nothing matches the torque and power of the E-tec.

Good memory, wrong engine. That was the Merc, but I was the dummy that drove the top of the drive shaft thru the bottom of the pan. A day that will live in infamy, and that SWMBO keeps reminding me every time I drag out the tool box and start walking towards the boat...….

Etecs, people either love them or not. I am a four stroke user.

But your instincts are correct. Parts and labor would be problematic in Mexico especially it being discontinued. A much better option are the 3 Japanese brands sold and serviced everywhere in Mexico: Honda, Suzuki and Yamaha. But, I'm guessing here, you already know that.
