XCharger Clarification please
Here is the deal. Have a 2005 RXT that I bought with a bad SC - they tried to run it way too long shot. Anyway, not sure if the charge can be rebuilt or not, but as an alternative, I am thinking maybe I should just upgrage to an X-Charger?
1) So...what is an X-Charger? Is it a Sea-Doo racing charger or is it an aftermarket? I see a XX on Rivas site, I see X on PWCPerformance. Are they the same? Basically, where to go for the best price?
2) What is the Vinton seal and why do I need it? Or does it come with?
3) I see a lot of post that say stock injectors OK and I see others that say #42s, Can I run stock injectors - at least as a starting point?
4) My impellor is banged up anyway, so may as well upgrade - is there one that will work with the X and stock injectors and will still work if I go to #42's. Beyond that I don't forsee doing much more up upgrades.

Seadoo X charger, stock injectors I believe, and a 15/20 impeller. If you have the money, throw in the 42s with an intercooler to get your money's worth from the charger.

The X-charger is a stock SC that came on X boats meaning RXP-X and RXT-X they are factory chargers for those boats. The reason guys go with viton seals is because the stock ones are very unpredictable and can begin to leak at anytime. From my research i'd definantly go with the 42's. As far as impeller someone else will chime in im sure.
As for the best price, id just watch the classifieds for an X-charger and some 42's.

X charger, 42's and a 3 blade 14/18 is my setup and is very safe. I also have a rear 3" intake. A 15/20 prop is way too tall for a RXT unless you go the whole stage 3 ++ set up. I would start with a 14/17 or a 14/19.

from what i gathered, you only need the 42's if you go with the 4" kanaflex intake and x-charger or stock intake, x-charger and external intercooler. if you go with the x-charger,42's, external intercooler, and 4" kanaflex ,you'll need an rrfpr to monitor your AFR's. If I'm wrong somebody with more experience will chime in such as Jerry, msrxp, snowman, etc.

I have all that with no RRFPR. No troubles yet after 140hrs. If I do anything more to the motor then I would need to start worrying about monitoring devices

Correct,When running an X-Charger on a Non-X boat you WILL need 42s...If your running a stock inter-cooler then you will be fine with just the 42s and NO raising rate regulator...NOW if you decide to go with a external inter-cooler then you will have to run a RRFPR with the resource line connected...when going with this setup you will probley want to invest in some sort of AFR gauge so you can monitor your afrs and adjust as needed...As far as props????I would go with a 14/17 unless you plan on going with an external inter-cooler then i would go with a 13/18 or a 14/19...A 15/20 is way to big for an RXT..
