Thread: 787 to a 951?

  1. #1

    787 to a 951?

    My brother just bought a 97 xp with a blown motor. We were looking at a new sbt motor, and had a thought. Could you get 951, and pit it in his ski without alot of modification? Or will to much stuff need to be changed?

    the rear motor mounts are the same but the front is on the opposite side, so you have to fiberglass in a new mount. Theres a little bit of hull cutting to get the pipe to fit, but thats about it. I think you can use some if not most of the 787 electronics too. You can do 60-61 probably stock with the motor swapped in

    do a search, 951 swap to an xp

    looks like fun, the 951 is a bit more upkeep than the 787

    Fellas the 97 XP is not a X-4 hull. Essentially all you would need is the motor and exhaust for the 951. glass in the front mount. I dont think that you have to cut anything on a 97 to make the pipe fit. all you need then is a MSD ignition enhancer and a mag cup swap.

    read my build thread on my X-4 951 swap I used the 787 electronics. "Airborne's 951 XP" in the projects sub forum

    Pump, pump shoe, driveshaft, front mount, whole exhaust, motor and mag cup from 98 951, coupler and maybe fuel tank.

    same fuel tank, different baffel. exhaust is on the wrong size including the outlet.

    way more work than its worth. sell it and get a 98+ xpl. same hull but already has a 951 in it.

    Is it as easy as slapping an msd on a 97 XP? That does have the new style mpem in it.
