I have an '07 197 350 MCX and I'm starting to notice a loss of power out of the hole as well as reduced top end speed. My first thought was to change the fuel filter, but I can't locate it. Is ther an inline filter, or is it in the tank as part of the fuel pump.

Fuel filter is at the bottom of the fuel pump inside the gas tank. I would be skeptical that fuel delivery is the cause of your power loss, but it is easy to diagnose. Buy or borrow a fuel pressure gauge and connect it to the Schrader valve on the fuel rail at the top of the MCX. If the pressure is normal (I believe around 60 psi is normal) at various RPMs then you probably do not have a fuel delivery problem.
