    Seadoo lrv engine compartment demensions, possible conversion?

    I was hoping someone here could give me some general measurements and pics of the engine bay. I want to get one and do a conversion and want to know if my choice of engine will fit.

    Thanks for any help!

    Thats a ton of weight compared to a 951. You may have weight capacity issues by the time its done.

    I figure about 500 lbs for a LS2 conversion.

    What are you going to use for a pump? How are you going to harness that kind of torque?

    I had not thought of it yet. There are many pumps out that can handle it. Weather it will fit is another issue.

    I don't like what evrone else is doing. Not that it's not cool or anything but I prefer something original. If I can i will do something wild and different. I would try a boosted 20b rotery engine before a 4tec. I would also do a MSX 4tec conversion before an lrv 4tec conversion.

    The outboard drag engine project in a GSX hull was rather impressive.



    Here is a 2.2 liter EFI engine in a Polaris...

    The Seadoo 4-Tec has become the 'Chevy small block' of the PWC world. If something needs more power, 4-Tec is the widely chosen method
