If fuel injected its 260 HP if carb 220 HP.

Does it really matter? The engine is the engine you have until it's time to repower.

Lied is probably extreme. Tough to prove he knew differently and chose to misrepresent it.

Carb is 220HP. The engine serial number will determine YoM. Call mercruiser and they will do a serial number lookup to narrow it down. Model year engine sold in a later calendar year is not unheard of. (e.g. 2001 engine in a 2003 model vessel, for example).
