Bull... Have him send pics, then post them up here, also ask him to cite which shows and mags this ski was featured in??
Also, tell him if he can make it go 80, then you will pay 4k cash for it, but if he can't, you will pay $1500

It could go 90 if you kicked it out the back of a C-130 at 10,000 feet.
I am still trying to figure out why his add for a '99 XPL has a picture of an '02 GTX on it. In fact, I am pretty sure that is the cover pic off a Clymer manual.
The guy is a tard. The best bet is to tell him you want to buy it and when you go meet him kick him the balls.

This is the email I sent him
Wow, that is some fast boat. I have a 99 XPL with a jet engine off a Tomohawk cruise missle in it and it only goes 78mph. It sounds wicked though.
Do you have anymore pics of that boat. I am interested and would like to see some more of the hull and the HIN and stuff like that. Oh, and the engine too, unless you think it might give away some secrets, hehe.
Anyway, thanks man, I hope I hear from you soon. I am in NC and could come up anytime.

This is the response I got...
No its the stock motor case just upgraded the carbs and the pistons and crank and board out at 7 .and the only thing I haven't done was the jet cone but internal the motor is all done up the ski has been on wavejunkies.com also boating mag the only thing is that I broke the front bumper and don't have time in my life to fix it with being busy with work and all.

He wrote me back. I asked him what web sites. I will not drag this out too much so he will be getting the "You are a MORON message soon."
He must not have read what I wrote, or he is stupid enough to believe the jet engine in an XPL BS.
I can send pic and yah its fast as shit it has been on several web sites and I use to race it before the new engine.I had a cop friend come with me one day and he marked it at 92 on flat water .ill try to take better pics

This is what i sent him...
Very interested. Need some details on what mods you have done. If you can show me this ski doing 80mph on GPS or radar I will give you 4k cash on the spot.I only live 3 hours away. I will come get it asap.
Well for 4000 I'm not wasting anyones time I have a cop friend the clocked it at 92 on lake gaston it has bigger pistons and board "10" over with seaman carbs with d d intake and grate and props and crank shaft.bone stock it does 78 miles and hour the only thing it needs is a front bumper to be complete
then I sent:
Just curious why you posted a pic of a GTX on the ad?
So your mods include...
PROPS - How many does it have??
D&D intake - Is this an air intake ???
D&D grate as well? Meaning your intake grate?
And a crankshaft...
Just want to make sure...
Gtx I sold this morning and yes to all ur questions it have one prop its a d d
I love messing with these morons...

The next installment:
Oh man that is great. I used to talk to Derm on seadoo.net. If you do not mind I will ask him about the boat, since I know him-ish, or at least know about him and that he knows his stuff.
I noticed a pic of an '02GTX in the add. Is that available too. That picture sure looks familiar, but maybe I am imagining things.
That speed is certainly amazing. Before we put the turbine in my boat it would only go like 63 or so with the original engine. It is incredible to get that kind of speed out of one. I was really disapointed in that GE turbine. We thought it would go at least 85 but we can not seem to get enough fuel to it.
