    Besides cosmetic. Horse power and a different pump tunnel and exit nozzle.

    Wow I kinda feel both those are pretty good deals if the skis are clean. It's your call really, the X will do a little worse on gas but it is quicker and a little faster up top, plus the steering is cooler on the X. The bigger pump tunnel on the X helps out in rough water but if you plan on modding the ski can overstuff easier.

    Get the X. With basic mods you can go 75+ without pump stuffing worries. SC washers are good in both skis.

    Since they are both 08 or newer the washers won't be as big of a problem. On top end stock vs stock the X is only about 2 mph faster up top but if you simply change the intake grate on the x it will pick up another 2-3 mph. You really can't go wrong with either one but my guess is if your into speed and really want a ski thats pulls hard stock then the x is the way to go.
