Thread: RXP Went BANG!

  1. #1

    RXP Went BANG!

    Hey GUYS

    I have been following this site for years and have gathered so much info from it, ill start with a big thanks!!. Currently I have a RXX and two XPL. Last night i just went and picked up the new ski. A 2004 RXP with a "blown Headgasket". I know there is issues with the 04 skis having hollow valve stems so i figured worst comes to worst it will need a new block or head!. Hooked a battery up and it was seized solid. Opened up pandoras box to find snapped valves, piston completely destroyed and a cracked block.

    So time to rebuild, suggestions on parts would be greatly appreciated. The crank webs have some color on them from heat. I figure ill take it to a machine shop and get it trued, or do you guys suggest to replace it?

    Parts:

    Block
    Cylinder Head
    Aftermarket Valves
    Aftermarket Springs
    New Rods
    New Pistons
    New bearings
    Rxp-X supercharger and injectors
    New or modify waterbox
    Rear Exit exhaust
    Cold air intake
    boost and oil pressure gauges

    damn man thats a serious blown head gasket lol. use new oem valves (2010+) or maybe the new supertechs that jerry just released. supertech springs/retainers, fizzle 4" intake, riva waterbox (since you want rear), used x/et/rude s/c (your looks angry), if your gonna buy s/c and injectors go bigger so you dont buy twice. just ask lots of questions and you will get lots of answers. gL

    if your gonna build the engine, you can run as much boost as you want as long as you have fuel for it. i was going to use et 68-140 before i decided to go turbo. the new fizzle HE i/c is a good priced kit and there will be some more testing on it very soon. just try and doo it right the first time, even if it takes a bit longer. you dont want to be saying "i wish i would have just done that while it was apart"

    With that much carnage I imagine he started adding it up and didn't follow thru.
