Repowering my Champion

Mar 5, 2014
Fort Leonard wood, MO United States
I blew the powerhead in my old 200 black max. Instead of putting on a new powerhead I have decided to put a more modern power plant on my 202. I found a 2008 optimax 225 with fly by wire controls and am seriously considering it. My boat is solid and I really like the layout of it compared to the newer fish/ski. My question is what gauges will I need to make this work? Will I need mercmonitor or can I use regular auto meter gauges? Also, is there anything else that I will need to make that motor work on my boat, like a different fuel tank hookup, steering issues, or other odds and ends? Thanks for any info
