The 180 Dauntless is rated for 150hp maximum.
The E-Tec 150, 175, and the 200, all weigh the same at 427 lbs for the 25 inch shaft.
If you try to put on a 225hp, it weighs 524 lbs... Almost 100 pounds more on the transom. I think that might be too much weight. If you are thinking about putting on the 225, you might as well go to the 250hp for the same weight...
Good Luck and don't forget to wear your crash helmet with all that speed... :-)

So do I iunderstand correct that you think the boat can handle the weight and power but you care mainly for my safty. correct ?
my main concern is that the boat is not out of balance with the nose high in the sky and that I dont loose the engine becouse the whole stern broke off
