There are people out there that specialize in performance marine engines. Here is one that is in my area:

I haven't heard much back from the whipple guys other they want to do the full install there and hit me up for alot money so its hard to say acutally parts cost around 3-4k minus the stuff that has to be made and tuning all there turn key bolt kits start at 5k so how many mcx owners would pay that to get another 75-100hp out of the boat??

This is the same issues I was running into and why I took the upgrade path. After the research I felt it would be much cheaper to upgrade engines and offset the cost by selling my existing engine. Plus it would be much more reliable than a one off super charged system. Didn't want to deal with issues on the water or not getting to the water because they were troubleshooting my custom FI system.

I'd pay 3-4K but no more than that and It'll be a proven systen at that too. If my boat is for R&D then they can install it at no cost to me

Why not find a boat with a hull that's designed for high speed, rather than one that's designed more for its wake?
