    GPR VX conversion

    Has it been tried yet?

    I got a VX Sport (110 HP). Don't want to spend a lot of $$$ just wondering what it would take to do it?

    a stock GPR is 155hp... putting a VX engine would be putting a smaller engine in there..

    no real point in it to me

    nobody on this forum has done this where they have posted about it..

    Its been done here in miami. Ive seen it with my own eyes. It runs pretty well. No advantage over a regular gpr speedwise. But it does handle the chop better. im talking about a gp1300r motor inside a vx hull.

    I`ll bet the VX motor sips fuel compared to the 1300...

    if ya had a spare hull, and the engine and harness, I think it would make for a decent 50-52mph rec ski...
    dose it even fit tho?

    it will be a step down power wise for sure. stock 1200 is 155hp, 1300 is 170 hp. you will definitely have a sub 60mph ski that gets good gas mileage. should be a very simple swap. probably easier than mine. check it out. http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=92729

    the only real fab work is connecting the exhaust.
