supercharged 4-tec yama-doo SUV
Here we go again with Another supercharged 4-tec retrofit.
(gotta love ebay.) bought a gtx complete ski clip this time.
This time we decided to use a mint condition yamaha SUV 4 seater hull that had a bad 1131 motor.
The owner of this craft liked all the storage and stability of the monstrous sized boat like hull and deck. After taking some measurements we realized how easy the 4tec will fit in there. In the previous 4tec XPL install I used a Yamaha PTO coupler on the 4 tec shaft. So the drive train on this project has already been design in the last install. we will also be installing the gtx tank in there with the factory tank pushed forward, creating a total fuel capacity of 34 gallons. the factory tank will be a storage tank with a electric transfer pump connected to it. the on-off-reserve selector on the craft now will be for selecting to transfer fuel to the main tank (gtx) or to a 10foot retractable hose to fill a buddy in need.
we will not be getting into this one too deep untill the 4tec XPL is done.
heres the webpage that you can follow the progress on.
I just can't help it. These 4tec's are addicting, I just have this desire to put one in everything

I'm liking that dual fuel tank - then you can go WOT for 2 hours!

hehehe! A wolf in sheep's clothing. By the way, what kind of performance did you get out of your xpl project

I'd be MUCH more interested in the XPL.

the XPL is still my baby. the 4tec SUV is a freind of mine that feel in love with my project and decided to do one also.we were doing a ebay search saturday for parts for mine when i stumbled across a complete 4tec clip from a wrecked GTX. busted out the card and 2 g's later we got another motor package on its way.
we will be finishing my XPL first then moving to the SUV.

Hmm, what about the 300hp Rotax Racing engine in a GPR hull...
