    03 gtx 4tec motor the same as 04 rxp?

    The motor in my 04 rxp spun a rod bearing the end of last year. I bought a moto out of an 03 gtx thinking they are the same motor. I know the rxp is 215 hp and the gtx is 185 but i was told the motor is the same its the supercharger, injection and programing that was differant. I put it in and it runs mint but the ski will only go 62-64. The xcharger is new and was running fine last year. I put a boost gauge on it and it runs about 7-8 at wot. Is there a differance in the motors?

    ok so i see the compression ratio is differant. so is it in the heads or the pistons? I will do more resreach

    Cast pistons in the 185, forged in the 215. Probably other differences as well.

    Believe it is just the pistons and flywheel gear that are different on the shortblock. Only difference in the head assembly i believe is the cam.

    I may be wrong, but i thought the cam was the same

    Although you asked for the engine specifically, the difference in the skis are as follows:

    Fuel pressure regulator
    Double row gear/ flywheel
    Wear ring
    Oem intercooler/air intake manifold

    Some are concerned with the cast pistons, but there are several members running the cast pistons at 8100 with no reported problems for a while now.
