    $200 is dirt cheap for that ski if everything is there and all it needs is a top end.

    you can do a new top-end for little as $500 if your buying it for as little as that you can afford to throw a new top end at it

    If you do a new top end and you don't want to keep it i would put WSM pistons in it or SBT, they are cheap enough. If you were keeping it then i would use OEM stock first then PRO-X is the next best choice.

    decided not to go for it.. the crank webs had some rust on it a little and every now and then it felt rough on the crank shaft while rotating it.. and it was pretty screwd up from the slt water
