SHO MOTOR. Popular Mechanic april issue
Looking at the pics in the Mag, It is going to be a direct bolt in for the GPR
I will try to scan it if I can

yeah, I was looking at it...
if you can't scan it, I could probably also try to scan it, or get some good pictures..

That would be nice but I'd say the rxp motor has alot of parts out and the yami is just to new. BUT with that kinda cc's in a few years holy cow it could get crazy.... Like turbo 1800cc's!

Give it a year for all the upgrades to be worked out. Got to get pass that fly-by-wire throttle.
That front mounted SC makes me think the majority of upgrades will be straight to turbo... or even non-boosted and up the compression.
-New ECU, or stand-alone ems system. $1000-$3000
-New SC or turbo. $400-$3000
-New intercooler and some type of placement. $400-$1000
-God only knows what kind of gotchas, that Yamaha will have to either "ignore" or the aftermarket will have to fix.
-Availability. They will be scarce unless you are tied in, or are willing to gut a new watercraft.
-There will STILL have to be hull cuts. Go look at the FX powered GPR conversion. Those engines will be similar.

go ahead and scan it if you can. It is a very good picture of the motor all the way back to the prop..

Interesting to see, has anyone noticed in the pics if the tunnel is reinforced considering what the horsepower potential is going to be when moded??? Looks to be the same thickness to me, curious how strong the nanocel is compared to the smc?
