Default From alpha one gen II to bravo three dual prop

I have a 2003, 5.0 carb merc 220hp, with alpha one outdrive. I would like to upgrade it to bravo three drive. And since bravo outdrives don't have impeler built in, is it even possible to do this upgrade.

it's possible...expensive..but possible.....you will need to modify the transom for one....the raw water pump will be placed on the engine..so..more than likely will need to pull the engine to add all the parts to it...change the belt...and countless hoses and probably the y tube....yeah ..possible..but expensive...

hm I think it would be better to upgrade something else on my 2400SCR...and leave outdrive as is and next time I simply buy a boat with bravo installed...thank's for honest answers...
