GPRSHO build thread
i think its about time that i start my own build thread. recently i purchased a 08-FX-sho and the goal was to build a GPRSHO. i had alot of fun on that ski, but it just had no peace. I need to get this build out of the way to say i Did it. i have spent hundreds of hours reading on these swaps, but for my self i have NO idea what to expect from this build speed wise. i have never ridden a GPRSHO or even seen a GPRSHO in person, But Guys like BIG JOHN, Jim Leska, and RICH (WFO) were really awesome about giving me enough info on this project to finally bite the bullet and do it. HUGE THANKS TO THOSE DUDES!!!!
The SHO hull is now sold, and theres No going back. I just picked up a 05 GPR hull. Its going to be a complete stock build. I pulled absolutely All of the guts off that FX, and going to do a stock swap. stock fuel pump, injectors, sho jet pump (prob different screw), coupler, motor etc. only thing i plan on modding is the air intake, and cooling! Bruce was kind enough to hook me up with a modded straightened exhaust pipe, now i just need to figure out how to properly gut the water box, and make some brackets for the type-14 intercooler that i plan on using.
More pics coming as this build develops. i dont know how long it will take but i plan to take detailed pics of the process to make it as educational as possible.
few picks to kick this off

gimmie a couple weeks to get the brackets done... im just really slammed right now
its good the motor is out because you will need to mock up the hoses and I/C on the bench... makes it easier to install once the motor is in

In regards to the PM's you've sent, it's easier for me to attach what I used here in your build thread. I forwarded you the links to the reducing couplers you'd need, but this is what I used when I converted mine with a stock exhaust manifold that wasn't cut and straightened....
1 x Stainless Steel Joiner, 3.5" ( JOI000380 ) = $9.99
1 x T-Bolt Clamp for 4.5" Silicone Parts ( CLA000382 ) = $2.60
3 x T-Bolt Clamp for 3.5" Silicone Parts ( CLA000105 ) = $7.80
1 x 3.5" Silicone 45° Elbow, Black ( SIL000408 ) = $19.99
1 x Silicone Reducer, 45° bend - 4.5" to 3.5" - Black ( BRE000008 ) = $24.99
FedEx Ground (FedEx Ground: 1-4 Business Days with $100 Insurance Included): $12.99
The pics can give you an idea of how everything goes together, except yours will be straight instead of "S" shaped as mine was relative to using the stock manifold outlet.
I hope this helps.
