Mercruiser 228 MIE replacement...

Post by F26 1978 »

Hy,
Thank's a lot for the add !!!
I'm a New owner of an 1978 F26 Express Trojan boat.
Engine is close to 2000hr never rebuilt or oversize. It's a Mercruiser 228 MIE (5 L)

I would like to know if i can replace this engine with a bigger one like a 5.7 ? Or a 350 mpi ? I think about the room for à bigger one...
Thank's if you can help...
David,
Quebec, Canada.
