I am having problems with my 350 c.i. with a 260hp i/o on my 23' center console siverhawk. I was thinking of replacing it with a brand new 383.. I have a bravo outdirve.. does anyone know if this engine will work and if its able to be connected to my old outdrive. What about places that carry these motors and prices? installation estimate would be nice too. thanks in advance.

will it work ? yes,not a problem...but...if you're smart,you're gonna go with the smart play,a 5.7mpi magnum - that engine's gonna deliver great performance,along with great fuel economy - that rig's a seacraft hull,i have the same power - 5.7mpi magnum,in my own sea craft - that rig's running close to 3nmpg,performance is great...you're gonna save alot with the 5.7 engine
