    Thats a 6. Theres allready a V6 production Jet ski by HSR coming out. I think i remember HOSS talking about puting a 350 small block in a RXP but i dont know if that project ever took off.

    I just did some work towards putting a Ford 302/347 in an extra RXP hull I had. The conclusion was that it's just too big, even the small Ford Windsor motors. There would be valve covers and exhaust pipes sticking out everywhere. Not good when you have that much extra weight in it.

    I took the measurements and it`ll fit. The intake would have to be made very low and incorporate fuel injection. Exhaust logs would have to be fabbed as well. After all that the pump would never handle the power.

    But it would be cool.

    If anyone is willing to let me try on a hull I have a 450 hp pump gas motor all ready to go. And I just so happen to have a Berkly pump with bowl work from GS marine that I`ll donate from my boat as I`m gonna hang an egg beater off the asss end now. The 572 is going in my Cutlass.

    There's that Westski with a V8, but it's not really a PWC...
