Welcome to SCJB  ;D

The main difference between a street engine and a jet boat engine (open cooling system) is going to be the bearing & ring tolerences.

If the automotive engine is older with some miles on it, it will probably live for a while.  You will find that it will need to be up graded to give you any performance though.

Good luck
