Default mercury efi might be fixed !!

Ok , so after talking to mercury , i rebuilt the fuel pump and new plugs , but very little help on the issue .....so i went today i took off the throttle body to see what was goin on in there . I noticed built up oil , not a whole lot but enough , so i emptied the fuel rail made sure all connection were properly connected within the body and fuel rail reinstalled everything and started it up , it ran worse ...then before lol...but then i remembered i put the old throttle position sensor on thinking for some reason the new one went bad , reinstalled the new tps and fired it up ....full response , she was purring like a kitten ....so i think the body and rail was where the problem lied ...but hmmmmm i dont know exactly what the issue was !

Yeah steve , i limped back to the ramp on what seemed to be one ,or possibly 2 cylinders couldnt get her past 2k rpm when out in bay , and it seemed to be very intermittent first she sounded like crap then it would seem as if other cylinders kicked in , and drop back off ....so my guess is either stator ....or ign computer ....either which one or both ...gonna cost me around 400-1100.00 to fix ....which right now i dont have ...so my season is over ....unless invites are put out !
