I just re-engined my 5.4 with a rebuilt 90 hp 2 st Yam and my cable had to be 14 feet teleflex. It will really depend n your console positioning tho'. Hope this helps.
BTW I get 36kts on WOT with a 19" pitch prop. Believe me in the Atlantic (other side of the pond) that can get plenty scary. All the best, I lived in Newport RI for 3 years and that boat should be absolutely perfect for that area.
