Toddo,
outright speed is dependent on many factors, but 130 should be faster on the same hull if the hull is designed and rated to 130hp.

Only if it's running a higher pitch prop.

Toddo,

A bit of research of some of the ETEC sites might help, here is just one blog on the 115 from a quick search, hope this is helpful.

The major difference is the HO is factory worked and might be a bit sharper out of the hole
 The HO will use a bit more oil than the 130 is its expected that you are going to use it for sports use ;D Ie, flat out!!!
 Pretty much identical engine otherwise
