96 seadoo gti - 717carb / 947 DI swap - Do it or don't??
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 I will need...
glass in my own front motor mount
figure out what to do with a bigger exhaust
What else am I looking at?
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?
I guess my real question is, should this be attempted?
Should I wash my hands of it and save for a newer (legal) one?
Thanks in advance for any help guys

Where? I havent tried craigslist yet, but with mead being off limits, I think our 2 stroke market is dead. Worth a try though.

Wait till late march or April and people will be getting the itch to get on the water and buy anything they can. It will draw a primieum on CL.
