What is the application for this engine, boat or car?

The Ajusa camshaft is a "car" camshaft, not a "boat/penta" cam. They will fit, but they have different camshaft profiles. You can buy a used set of cams for ~$200 usd.

If the cam is shot due to oil starvation, the cam journals are also probably damaged. You can get these line bored (~$300), or if you can find someone with the older reamer with bearing shells that might be cheaper. You can also just put any other 16v cam cradle on there. Yes they are supposed to be a matched set, but the overall height differences between heads is so incredibly small that it doesn't matter.
