Need info and opinions on possibility of Sea Doo 951 DI in a 96 GTI
As many of you know, NON direct injected 2strokes have been banned in many, if not all western states. I currently own a stock 1996 seadoo gti which is basically now useless since all the lakes within 500 miles of here are off limits. Ive been debating parting it out, but I think a piece of me will die inside. May turn it into a towable lake cooler for beers and food if nothing else.
I Have looked up the 947/951 direct injection engine and am seriously considering the swap. I havent found much info on it, but here is what Ive gathered..
Need the new engine
glass in my own front motor mount
figure out what to do with a bigger exhaust
My knowledge is very limited in the watercraft world, so Im ready for some harsh words. I work on jeeps and chevys all day. Is it much different?
Pardon the term but jerryrigging is my specialty.
I guess my real question is, should this be attempted?
What says the court?

Court says try posting this in the Seadoo 2 Stroke section or the Conversion section......
Drop a 4 stroke in there.......

Make a cooler out of it....Just my opinion.....Your gonna spend a fortune installing a DI in it and dont think it would fit since the pipe is MUCH bigger....

+1 means they agree with a previous post. You'll be money ahead to just sell it and purchase a nice used GTX with DI. Plus you'll be happy with the ergonomics of the newer machine.

Sure, tell them you've enjoyed it, tell them how it runs, tell them about any maintenance or upgrades you've done. Then tell them you're just looking to upgrade to a newer more powerful machine. It looks clean, somebody will buy it.
