    Google is your friend!
    Find the manufacturers website and specifications, it should provide the info you need.

    The gear ratio will be wrong.

    The intermediate center gear box wont be strong enough, there may be a horse power tag pressed in stamp on top under the cover plate. I started with a v6 and went to a v8 and had to change center gears because the 350 v8 broke it. I chopped up the old boat last year and kept the entire stinger v8 setup and plan to sell it.
