Green Hulk's white turbo FZR build thread
Unfortunately my beloved turbo VXR blew the pump tunnel out of it so I was forced to strip out the VXR and obtain a new hull. This time I choose an FZR hull. This thread will document the build process. I will update this first post as progress is made.
The heart of the beast after removing the engine from the VXR hull
I was lucky enough to find a new hull at Riva. What's nice is the top deck hasn't even been bonded to the lower hull yet which makes these very nice to work on.
It's amazing how light they are with nothing in them.
Since this ski will be built to go well over 90 mph the first order of business was to reinforce the pump tunnel. Since I have the luxury of having the top deck removed I opted to lay in my own glass/epoxy.
I decided to go with a new look on this ski and had it painted a gloss white.
To make everything look real nice with the seat off I decided to have Speed Liner sprayed into the engine compartment of the lower hull. Here's some pics showing the preparation of that
Before painting the top deck I cut some extra ventilation into it up under the front cowl
To let air in you must let air out so I also cut ventilation up under the rear grab bar/seat area
I had the rear seat cowl painted a gloss black and installed the same blue/black grooved mats that come on the new FZ SVHO skis. Also installed the FZ SVHO decals, but not too sure I will keep them on. I think I will do something different... still undecided
I also painted the side vents and top of the hood a gloss black and I'm using the FZ SVHO seat
My son Greg giving me a helping hand
With the hull completed it's time to start mocking up the engine, turbo, custom fab work, etc.
Custom intercooler setup.
Intercooler done and powder coated
Intercooler mocked up on engine
Custom supercharger blockoff plate
Custom billet throttle body adapter. No way is the hose blowing off of this throttle body
Custom MoTeC ECU mount bracket
Custom aluminum intake manifold
Manifold with custom billet fuel rail and 220 lb hr injectors, Rad4 Racing manifold isolator. ready to install
Everything installed, ready for top deck
Check out the custom Lucky 13 Billet battery mount in the back ground
Custom Lucky 13 Billet battery mount
Top deck about to go on.
Top deck finally sealed in place
Of course, with all this power the ski has to have the "Green Hulk Style" Skat 14 vane pump with floating driveshaft setup
So that's where I'm at thus far with this project. Remember that this is the engine that came out of my VXR when it blew out the pump tunnel. A little water was ingested in the motor so I will be pulling the motor out and going thru it to ensure all is well. Then it's off to the water for fine tuning.

Hope you guys enjoy this build thread. I will post more as I get the motor done and get the ski on the water for fine tuning.
This ski is built to the same specs as my previous "Green Hulk' turbo FZR, but this white ski will use the MoTeC M1 ECU along with the new MoTeC color dash. Here's the thread on the "Green Hulk"

I have seen this ski in person and must say it is nice everything looks neat and perfectly placed. Should be a fast ski when done.
