    97 GSX UN-Limited setup

    How would a 215 stuff into a 97 GSX hull & with the right stuff how fast & stable would it be?

    The Dupont GSX is tired of being bullied!!

    I need insight here guys! I want a fast 80mph flat water ride!

    some pics
    Can someone get me some measurements:
    215 motor height, length & width. It looks like I will need a custom front motor mount on the motor, that one sticks out several inches. By measuring eyeball in the hull on my rxt, the total length looks to be 24 - 25" to the PTO with the OEM mount on..... My 800 motor in there now sits 20" tall from bottom of the hull to the top of the spec2 pipe.
    Would the motor tilt in and straighten out without the intake mani on then install it later? Hmm...

    I think the weight is going to be a problam my V6 ski the engine was around 185 lbs and you could not climb on the ski in deep water it would flip over backwards and would not float with two people on it

    I ask basically the same question about a year ago, because my 96 GSX was my favorite ski, and I thought how cool of a conversion would that be.
    Pretty much everyone said it cant be done. not enough room.

    I know exactly where we can get a Polaris 1200 with triple pipes, WITH conversion mounts already made, that will drop right in. All you will need is Ted to make the driveshaft...

    pretty sure by the time you add in the funky pipes, it's way, way, way larger than either.
