    1996 polaris slx 780 engine swap

    Will a 900 SL engine fit into a 96 slx 780 hull? What other mods might need to be done to make it work properly?

    Not an easy swap. One is a Fuji engine, the other is a domestic engine. Everything around the engine would need to be swapped - electrical, exhaust, engine mounts, and so on.

    Doable, but a lot of work.

    Too much work to be worthwhile.

    Just buy a bigger ski or get another 780 engine.

    Why not try the "mod" way? I had no problem with my SLX racing stock SL900's. There are a lot of people that can help with that 780.

    For sure.

    My modded 780 absolutely annihilates SL900's, eats em up....
