2005 RXT engine life? How long should an engine last? Your opinion please...
I have a 2005 RXT that has always been winterized plus oil/filter changed every 25 hours. The engine has no sign of wear and doesn't feel weak at all. I has 178 hours on it and I'm trying to figure out how much longer it will last. It has only been ran in fresh water and turns 7900 rpm's....always. It's never given me an ounce of problems, to good to be true or can I get another 100 hours out of it?

231.6 max! Kidding! There is no set time. Its all in how you care for your craft and engine. There is a local guy here that has an 04 rxt and had it since new. He has 520 something hours and runs strong. Changes oil every 10-20 hrs. SC rebuild every 100, plugs every oil change. Carbon seal every 100 hrs. Preventative maintenance is key here.

If you have good luck with chargers and dont have one go on you eg washers or bearings.
and you keep up the maintenance
It should be good for a very long time
