    1997 XP Electronics Swap

    Might be inheriting a 97' XP with a bad CDI for my son.
    What exactly is needed to swap the 97 over to the 96 electronics instead of trying to locate a 97 cdi??
    Thanks
    Doug

    I have a ski that has been converted over to 96 components in a 97 XP, my other VE engine. You will need a complete 96 gray box. There are splices you will need to make, but the person that did it, did a good job tracing the differences in the schematics between the two model years. You will have to do the same.

    No, sadly. The internals are all the same on the engine. It's just the electronics that are different.

    The main reason you need the whole gray box is because a 96 has two electronic modules, an MPEM and a DC-CDI box. The 97 has only one module, the MPEM (they integrated the DC-CDI function into the MPEM in 97)
