    IM Back, New GTX S3 215

    Why the GTX 215??? You ask?
    Well I tried the FZ platform from Yamaha and it was just not for me. The motor is bad ass, but I didnt like how the ski road.

    I have decided to get a 215 GTX S3 hull as it was one hell of a deal and I wanted to see if there was really any difference in the 215 vs. 260 in Stock form with all limiters. I truly believe the 215 will do the 66-68 just like a 260... We will see.

    Plus the parts that I will upgrade will make the boat just like any modified S3 hull

    ECU
    Intercooler
    SC'er
    Injecters....

    Thats the only difference from the two if Im correct.

    Anyway here it is.

    Nice ski and smart thinking on your part. It's kind of like saving money by buying a Yamaha SHO instead of the SVHO since all the factory "upgrades" between the 2 models are going to get replaced anyway with aftermarket parts!

    James I also like how your Complete IC kit sits to the side instead of over the transom. SO I didn't need any of that. Im gonna run it tomorrow and get bas lines.
    I like it because I dont see any of them at all. I see a ton of T-X's and RXT's, but I dont know I have seen any of these GTX's.

    In what sense? The GTX is normally more expensive than the RXT.

    In my experience, higher HP models hold their value better than lower HP models in the used market. That makes it easier to find a deal on a 215 than a 260. Others' experiences may differ.
