Yes the Marine power 340hp is a great motor..I have the the same engine in my 22v although in 2003 it was rated @335hp. But the bottom line no matter if the rating on the Merc is 315 or 330hp its a 5.7L just like your engine and will have very simular torque . Thats what its all about when it comes to getting the boat rolling.
So to the OP the 5.7 Merc. works well in the 24v. I have been in plenty of them with both the Merc and Marine Power. They both do well. The Vbox ratio is a big help so look into that. I also happen to prefer the Marine Power over the Merc. I work on all brands of ski/wake boats every day and really like the way Marine Power does things. Nothing wrong with a Merc. I just like MP better.
