Wasn't there something posted about California (of course) outboards have smaller carbs for lower HP and licensing?

Take a good look at the workshop manual and parts lists--In the two-stroke tohatsu/nissan, the only difference between 9.9 and 12 hp was a throttle cam which opened the throttle wider when you turned the handle. You don't have to burn more gas unless you run the engine at WOT.
