Dual mercury 40ís

Hello Rib net!
I have an opportunity to purchase a set of 2004 4 stroke ( very clean efi models) mercury 40 E engines. 20Ē shaft w/ Nitro assist with tiller controls.
I want to mount this on a 18ft Nautica DL.
Does any one know to to convert this set up to standard merc cables and remote control box? They have the old school 7 pin harness.
Any thoughts? Is there a kit for this?
Also since the bracket in bot power trim and tile I was curious if I can adapt this to power trim with a aftermarket electric motor....

I will post photos soon.
Am I just wasting my time or should just wait for a 90 or 115 hp to mount to the nautica.

Easy enough to convert. Control boxes with the old style 7 pin are still widely available off the shelf.

What about the shifting? And throttle not the same as a 40 elpt.
