Anybody find a 4tec running 2quarts low?
Checked a ski today. 06rxp and it was not even showing oil on the dipstick. Boat was just run and had no issue's are warnings.
I asked him if it ever went into limp mode and he said nope ran good.
SO I add 2 quarts and get the oil to half way up the stick.
I find this odd. How low on oil will theses 4tecs run with no issue's? I could of swore the alarm and limp mode would have gone off.
I guess there is always 2 to 2 2.5 quarts in them. When I change the oil and that is about what I add when I change theoil. so he should of had equal as all I added was two quarts.

My RXT that I sold few months ago, after the dealer (that I dont use anymore) installed a long block into it had only 2 qt of oil in it. I would get a warning and limp mode when I would turn the ski hard.

You might gain some tenths at halve dip stick but i would not advise it with high boost, high rpm and long wot runs.
Sorry to highjack Austin, just low oil sore subject to me.
