    It depends on your level of mods, new or used parts, and what deals you can find. If you can weld/cut stainless it's a big help. If you're familiar with the seadoo engine/electronics and the yamaha hull, that is important too. That being said, if you are completely capable of the task and efficient as well, it could be done in a couple of FULL WORKING days (8-12+ hours). And that's if you have every single last part laid out and plans for everything ready to go.

    Cost can be from as low as $6,000 for a stock ski (which is quoting hydrotoys, not my own opinion). An average cost for a decent amount of mods and not finding the best deals would probably be $9000-$11000.

    i agree-- u def. have to have the proper workplace and tools to do the job. This project is not as easy as it seems. There are alot of things that go into it. I would estimate roughly $10k or so for a good running setup-- or you could buy all the parts I have for sale!!! The hardest part is getting all the parts together. The process is not too difficult, just takes time and patience. Each step of the process is its own journey. The GPRXP build is laid out in full by the GPRXP pioneers.

    I am personally building 2 GPRXPs slowly but surely. I work way too many hours and dont really have too much free time. A 80 mph RXP is pretty easy to build now and 85+ on a RXP is easy with the turbo setup. If you want to go fast the easiest way-- go buy a RXP for $6000 and a turbo kit for $4500 + a prop, fuel setup, and rideplate mods. and you will be 85++.

    I have the skill and knowledge, for the most part, but lack the time. I've been at mine on and off for about 2.5 months now. If I were to do it by the book, I probably could have built 4 by now. I want to do things my way, for better or worse, so it takes longer. I plan on being at 83 ish on a bone stock motor for 4g's or less after the dust settles and all the extra parts are sold off.
