    Need to beat my friend GPRXP!

    Hey guys

    I'm ready to pick a carb or efi GPR....Which one is better for modding?

    Will it accelerate quicker than those pesky GPRPX's?

    I need to hit over 90mph

    How much we r talking about? Who is the best/reliable builders?

    Thanks

    it cant be done, maybe with tripples but i doubt it and the maintenence blows anyway on them.

    both efi and carbs are great for modding but both have pros and cons....

    if your aim is to beat your mate dont bother with a 2 stroke because you wont catch him unless you spend big bucks

    pm hydrojunkie or hydrotoys and see if they will build you a turn key conversion ( gprxp) because its the only way you will be happy...fight fire with fire

    It all depends on what your buddies GPRXP has done to it. If your buddies GPRXP is mildly modded than it is doable with tripples and a very slight possibilitly with a single pipe. Some single pipes are now running 87 88. But either way if you want to compeat with a 2 stroke you will need to go with a builder like Ben Herman or Kerry Hibdon. Now if you wanna get a GPRXP this is your best deal - http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=69384

    Good luck

    Buy this motor (I'll sell it with a complete ski)

    Then add these pipes

    That would get you to 90...

    Woundnt matter much with the 1500 top end. It would compete with most of them.

    Any properly modified ski by an experienced tuner will be far more reliable than any stock and/or dealer maintaind ski. This is fact.

    MILDLY ? u said u want to do 85+mph.. there is NO mildly..

    Do u think the modded GPR from Ben accelerate quikcer than GPRPX? Yes and No... Speed/Holeshot depends on allot of factors
