    Install a 951 & then mod it.

    Ive heard that the 787 is a more stable engine than the 951, thats what ive heard so dont quote me, ive also heard that one of the best engines seadoo made was the 720, someone told me there is alot more mods you can do to it and eventually get more power out of it, so if all this is true wouldnt i be better off doing a 720, again dont quote me cause im new to the seadoo family
    thanks

    Whoever told you 720 is good as a modified motor has a few screws loose.

    A 720 modded is like a hand grenade...pull pin....

    The 800 is a MUCH better motor than a 720 any day.

    And better than the 951 too. But...there is still too much hull for a modded 160HP engine to push the GTX to 70. This engine modded will still only get an X-4 hull into the low 70's.

    Wrong again,jet boat carbs are the same carbs as ski carbs.

    Not knocking you,but whoever you are hearing this stuff from doesnt know his ass from a hole in the ground.
