    Engine swap info please

    Hi guys. My boss's brother bought a pair of 1995 XP's. One has the 657 and the other has the 717 engine.

    He doesn't like the 2 seater hulls at all. He's a bit bigger, and can't get back on them in deep water.

    So he's looking to swap the engine into a 3 seater hull if he can find one with a blown engine.

    My question is, which 3 seater hulls will easily transplant the engine/engines he has already?

    I see there's a GTX, a GTI, and a GTS all around the mid 1990's model years. Thanks for any info you guys may have.

    I'm not the best info for GTX hulls, but the 97 GTI came with the 717 engine. This would be one to look for. Finding a GTX from 96-97 will have the 787 engine, and it's not worth the trouble.

    Hopefully others can chime in with more model years to search which hull had the 717 in also.

    but why did he get a 2 seater when he prefers a 3 seater in the 1st place?

    Maybe this list will help you find a hull with your motor

    Although this list doesn't show 95 xp having a 650....
