    Nothing is impossible to do it .. but you should consider high cost to retrofit all ..

    Best option is selling this ski and buy a Sc version !

    Less trouble and good way to do it right


    Just my 2 cents ..

    It would be cost prohibitive. The best thing to do is trade it in on a RXT.

    Oh you are not going to like what I am going to say.

    I went from an 04 155hp wake to an RXT. All I can say is dump the 155hp and step up to at least the 215hp. It is night and day. You will quickly find the 155 can barely get out of its own way.

    The 155 is a great platform for a family ski. Anyone looking for a little more is not going to find it on the 155 platform.

    You will be delighted with the RXT.

    don't bother trying to upgrade. An yes you are really missing out not having the 215 or more.

    Told you, you weren't going to like what I said.

    The 155 HP NA engine runs 10.6:1 compression while the SC engines run like 8:1 so you would have to change pistons. The cam is probably different too, maybe even the head. The ECU will be different too as it has to control the boost. The MPEM works with the ECU so it would probably have to be changed as well. It would be way cheaper to sell it buy an SC model.
    I have an 155 HP GTX that I like as well. Mine only goes around 56 MPH with a 200 lb rider and full tank of gas. I would like to read about ways to make it go faster (say 60 or so) without having to trade up to a SC model. I could have bought a SC GTX but I didn't want to deal with the SC issues. The mechanic that I talked to said by far the most problems he sees with these ski's are with the SC and they still haven't got the problems solved even on the new models. He said if I just wanted a reliable ski that would do 55-60 and didn't need to go 70 then I would be much happier with the NA GTX.

    This just shows how much another moronic mechanic knows what he is talking about. There is a fix for the Supercharger and it has been out for years, but Seadoo did not acknowledge it until this year and the fix will be on al 2008 supercharged models.
