    2008 sho converted to two stroke

    Current project is converting a 2008 sho to 2stroke. Modification ive made so far, a custom fiberglass rearseat, custom front hood. Installing a Group-K built 1390 using 800 cylinders, with gas power valves and a direct port injected nitrous system. I will post some pictures soon. the picture in my avatar is how the build looking currently, have to install the graphics now and install the engine.

    This might be a first. Definitely interesting and your going to get a lot of looks on the water. Can't wait to see the numbers it puts down.

    Thatdude596 nailed it! much cheaper to rebuild also i didnt pay anything for the hull. Also Wanted to upgrade from my Gpr due to the Sho being a much better craft for the water conditions in Cayman Islands.
