RXP-X Engine install in 2004 RXP?
I recently had the misfortune of having an engine failure in my 2004 RXP. So now I am looking into possible options for repair. This is my
Riva Intake, Blow Off Valve, Exhaust, Solas Prop, and supercharger metal washers.
Just brain storming this is what came to mind as for repair:
Basic repair or install a rebuilt engine with factory specs.
But then I begin to think about possible upgrades I can do. Is it possible to install and RXP-X engine into the ski without major changes. I do recall the RXP-X was built with some stronger internals.
Some insite into my failure. Ski was running. Definately up to temp, cruising behind a boat maybe 4-5k rpms. Boat goes to slow down so I accelerate to get past and ski cuts out when RPM's get up around 7-8k. Pulling plugs the #3 cylinder, rear cylinder clearly was contacted by something inside that cylinder. Other two cylinders look to be fine, no oil, nothing unusual on the plugs. Like I said I haven't taken apart yet, but still my mind is thinking about what went wrong. Ski only has 95 hours.
1> I figure either stock intercooler let loose and hydro locked
2>Head Dropped a valve
3>Possible lean condition from the mods caused piston to melt / break
4>Con Rod bearing failure, but there hasn't been any low oil warning previously or while riding.
I know a lot of variables and questions above. This has just been racking my mind recently. Thanks for the help.

sounds like it dropped a valve and the rxpx motor if im not mistaken is the same minus the supercharger,intercooler and injectors...you might as well save some money on a stock rxp motor (which im sure you can) and buy an x charger and fizzle intercooler and injectors...
edit: just re-read your post.. not sure about the stronger internals.. im sure someone will chime in
