Hello Eric, my name is***** will assist you.When you did the filters, did you also do the high pressure filter located at the rear of the engine. It is often missed. Has your boat been sitting for some time. If so you will need to check the fuel and make sure that you are not getting any water to the engine. If you have owned the engines for a while and do not know if the exhaust update was done to them, that would be worth looking into as well.
