    how to tell the difference between the 215HP and the 255HP speedster?

    I am purchasing a 2009 speedster with the 255 hp motor tomorrow. My question is, how could I make sure that this boat has the 255Hp engine other than looking at the stickers?
    It seems to me that someone who is selling this boat could have the 215 and just change the stickers on the back to the 255 ones and I would never know.
    Is there any other way to tell them apart?

    255 have external inter-cooler. 215 is internal to the intake manifold.

    Thank you. I will make sure it has the external one.
    Do you happen to know where it's mounted? I'm sure I can just follow the hoses and find it if not.

    There is a picture of it here http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...#ht_500wt_1182

    Can the intercooler be seen in the picture of the engine?
    The engine picture is at the bottom of the listing, where the pictures are in a vertical row.

    It sits in the back above the ride plate.

    Yes that one pic shows the IC hoses as two and not just an elbow from the SC to TB.
