    Time for an overhaul.

    Ok i've been weighing my options and i'm thinking of doing an overhaul of the ole 185 horse SC engine. I'm either going to do the work myself or be working very closely with a reputable, local machine shop. Now it's time to find parts. I can no longer find Nil's website so i don't know if he is selling the JE pistons i need. I'm thinking about doing something like the RR stage 2 kit for the GTX SC but i think it's a real stretch for my budget. At a bare minimum i want to do forged pistons, new bearings, seals, etc. What other sources other than Racetech, PPG, and easyrider are there for internal parts like this? Anyone else go inside the engine like this or am i pioneering this DIY level?

    Stick with the stock RXP pistons. They are Mahle pistons. If they are good enough for Porche then they are good enough for us

    I have been beating the hell out of a stock RXP short block all summer long. 15+ PSI of boost and 8800 RPM's. I can't break it.

    Jerry, are the Mahle pistons the ones listed with RR's kits? Where would be the best place to get them along with rings, bearings, wrist pins, etc?

    Any Sea Doo dealer can get this for you. Yes, RR uses OEM Sea Doo pistons.

    I'll have to see if Rich can get the hookup. The dealers around here would rape me on something like that.

    C P Pistons make a very nice piston and they will make 3 for you where as J E supply you 4. Not sure of the pricing in the U.S. but they were actully cheaper than oem units over here.Mind you, we get raped big time on all Seadoo parts here Smart move doing the rebuild sooner rather than later,how's the new addition coming along?

    CRS, i figured you would chime in eventually. I know i've asked this before but does CP pistons have a website? And about the new addition, we have reason to belive it's going to be a little girl but not sure yet. Can't wait to have someone to wrench on the ski with me.

    Hulk is not kidding, Stock pistons are the way to go!
