    Anything larger than a 951 is a tight fit...Even with a Coffman it was a tight fit in there...You already have the weight advantage of the CF hull...I would either build a STOUT 951 (a 1050 would be nice) or a punched 780....

    One motor that MIGHT fit, but would have to take a lot of work...is a Turbo motor from a Honda Aquatrax....But it might be too tall.

    Doesn't a seadoo 787 produce more power? Treated right, it is a great motor

    any chance of transporting the drive train of a RXP 215hp?found a good deal on a whole machine but needs work as a washer from the turbo went into the motor,any idea what damage that would cause and how much to repair?turbo all ready rebuilt.

    A Polaris 1200 motor with full triple pipe race pipes will fit in there (dear lord it's tight though)...

    At some point in my life I want to see if a 4-tec motor will fit in mine but that project has been on hold for a long time...
