sho motor in a doo? :)
so I'm just sorta thinking out loud here but I'm wondering if anyone with seadoo and yamaha technical experience can shed any light on what would be involved to get a sho motor inside a t3 hull. this would be a slow project that i would have to get pieced together but I'm interested if anyone has actually compared the 2 motors. I'm not sure how the driveshaft would work to connect it to the seadoo pump.
does anyone know the difference in physical dimensions between the two motors?
I'm sure it would cost a small fortune to get motec to work with it and retain ibr .
how cool would a turbo sho rxpx be
any input would be appreciated
haters keep your opinions to yourself

Custom Motor mounts would also be needed. I'm sure if guys can fit a 4 Tec or SHO in a GPR this can work!!

About a 150+ pound difference in the SHO over the Rotax....Its also deeper, taller, wider....Tough fit.....But it could be done, if a Rotax and SHo can both fit into a GPR....

can you make new motor mounts that will stick to the new hull material

I guess some kind of custom one piece mounting plate would have to be made that will attach to the current three point mounting points . My welder can do that part I'm sure. Driveline is what has me stumped
