force 75

Hi,
Just got my hands on a 1997 force 75, only want to use it as an interim engine while I rebuild a mariner. My question is, being the serial tinkerer that I am, can I up the horsepower to a 90 just by changing the carb out?
I'm not too familiar with force engines and was pretty surprised to find only one carb for three cylinders.
If anyone out there knows a bit about these any info would be much appreciated.
Cheers

I just check the EPC for you and the 90 runs three carbs instead of 1. Also check spares with barrus and they are showing hardly anything.

force

Thanks mate, sounds a bit too expensive if nigh on impossible to get 3 carbs plus manifold. 75 it stays then!
