I'd say go with a .25 instead. A .40 IMO is just too much, it's not because of the speed, but because the boat will flip often and won't turn well at all. It's just too short of a hull.

And those are just the icing on the cake !
It will be TOO heavy and TOP heavy as well . The ass end will sit WAY down in the water and have a hard time planing , it will porpoise , and the torque will cause more torque roll then its worth , and flip the boat and NOT even when your trying to turn .
Do as suggested above - but IMO - I would go with a good .19 , they have plenty of "umphh" for that size hull and a lot of folks ignore the .19's thinking they just don't have it . To be honest with ya , a .19 to a .25 is kinda like a .46 compared to a .40 ( being the .19 the better choice )
