cavie: you would have a real screamer but would probably void your insurance. Stinks to be an adult.

You may wanna change your name to "FLIPPER" if you do. There'd be some SERIOUS chine walking there!

I assume your 99 Yamaha is a 90, an engine not quite as fast as a Johnson or Merc 90.
So if you want to stay "legal", you might try one of those.
If not, I'd recommend no more than a fast 115. I think the Yamaha 2-stroke is a good contender in that HP range. The Johnson and Mercs would also run well. You might also consider the 115 4-stroke EFI, either Merc or Yamaha, but they are in short supply, I hear.
You would not be able to keep the boat in the water with a Merc 135 Opti!

For a go faster get yourself a Fountain, cushy ride at awsome speeds.

Just a gentle reminder, but discussions about the performance of classic Whaler hulls like the 17-foot Montuak are generally conducted in the forum "Classic Whaler: Performance".
There are dozens of threads in that forum about Montuak performance and repowering.
