    I need alot of help. 04 RXP

    Ok, so I bought a 2004 RXP with 63 hours on it. I went out the first time and within 20 minutes my oil light came on. Checked the oil and there was no oil and when I pulled the plugs on the rear a lot of oil came out. Turned out the rubber boot on the shaft didn't even had a clamp on it. Previous owner claimed it didn't leak with him, but it leaked 2.5 quarts in 20 minutes with me. So anyways, I fixed it and went out the next weekend. Well 30 minutes into my ride the jet ski shut off and wouldnt start. Had to get it towed 5 miles back to dock So got it back to the shop and pulled the spark plugs. #3 was tore up, stuck a bore scope down in the hole and it looked like freshy carved metal. My guess is that I broke a valve. So now that you know a little more, I need some advice on what to do.

    I know I will need a new head, new piston and rod, and of course all the other gaskets. What would you all recommend to build it back much stronger so this does not happen again. I would like to got 80mph.

    Thanks
    Josh

    The head is most likely repairable, If it were me in the same position I would do this:

    Full motor re-build with new riva pistons and new con rod for the effected cylinder.

    Set of ferrah light valves as the 04 valves are prone to breaking.

    Riva ECU, bosch 50lb injectors and the riva valve train upgrade (actually made by ferrah)

    Throw a new X charger on there and an external intercooler with a 4" intake and with the right prop and hull mods you wil hit 80mph.

    That lot wouldnt be cheap but it will get you to 80 without to much tuning as the Riva ECU will be fine upto 13psi.

    I suggested the Riva pistons over just replacing the 1 broke 1 as they are far better design and will help you to produce more power in the future. R88

    Ok, great. Any links to these parts? I am ready to order now, what else would I need to do. Master gasket set I assume. What compression pistons? What prop and hull mods? I already have rear 4" intake and intercooler

    If you have the money in hand now might be a good idea to call jerry green hulk or riva one.
