Can you get the old motors out?
What will fit in the mounts once the old motors are removed?

You should keep all the questions regarding one build in a single thread so they are easy to find and referance.

And it will be difficult to run it at all without a transmitter, unless you plan to
completely gut the electronics, and purchase a TX/rx set, and two ESC,

The advertising says they are 380 size motors, so if they can be got out they can be replaced by hotter versions. This also assumes that the drive couplers are intended to be disassembled and put back together.
The hull might not be able to handle the performance increase. (Instability at speed = boat upside down)
The control board might not be able to handle the power increase. (One-shot smoke generator)
If you can't get a transmitter, it's all a bit theoretical.
