    Putting an RXP engine in a GTX???

    Just curious - if the skis are the same year, what would you need to put an RXP engine into a GTX??

    Obviously the engine and engine components....

    1. Driveshaft?
    2. Engine harness? (I assume yes...)
    3. Complete wiring harness?
    4. Gauge console? - the skis are basically the same with the exception of VTS - my understanding is that a ski WITHOUT vts just wouldn't display anything....nothing to display
    5. Waterbox?? Should be the same...right???
    6. Pump??
    7. Grate??

    YEP. BUt it is easier and cheaper than trying to upgrade the GTX motor to get the 215HP. Dropping a new engine in would be less than buying an RXT, cheaper than upgrading the engine, and prevent having to crack open the block to change the pistons to handle the HP increase.

    But you would get the same gains as having the RXT...without the possible weight addition - I BELIEVE the RXT is a LITTLE heavier...not absolutely sure. But it would take the ski from 59-60 to 65-67. Then with some other upgrades (air intake already ordered, wedge kit already ordered, reprop already started, bolt holes filled in, etc) it could be over 70.
