    '07 or '08 RXT 215 - Worth it to pay more for the '08?

    Still shopping for a used RXT 215. I've found some '07 models priced much cheaper than '08 models with the same hours. Other than the switch to metal washers, is there any reason why I should spend $1500 extra on an '08 that looks identical to the '07? I could replace the '07's ceramic washers for much cheaper than $1500.

    08 has a far better supercharger and supercharger oiling system.. also has a better exhaust system.

    For whatever is worth......I can only compare an 05 to an 08 but...the 08 seemed to have a slightly quieter exhaust and a barely noticeably smoother engine. The 08 also had a CAN while the 05 (to my knowledge) did not.

    Anybody knows the actual difference in the exhaust system?

    no more "J" pipe... water box connects strait to the manifold.
