RXP-X exhaust pipe?
I thought I read on here somewhere that someone was using the pipe off the X-skis instead of the stinkin J-pipe??
Was it Addicted?
Anyone have pics of their setup?

It looks like some kind of home-made jobbie, not a stock X-pipe. Did you do something different? You were pretty determined to keep that silly mid-wall.

nothing to do with the mid wall. the jpipe is better used as a bong .. . or a motivational device.. .torture device. . .Canadian mousetrap. . .pretty much anything but an exhaust component. the interference with the wall just provided the motivation,,, but let's not get into that debate again
here you go. basically, you need to extend the water jacket so it clears the SC when the pipe is rotated. if you look at the pics, the 90* fitting that is at roughly 10o'clock is at 12o'clock in the doo.
You will need a length of 2.75od thin wall tube, a 4" disk 1" thick, a lathe and a welder. The 4" hose gets cut down, and you use a jpipe coupler to connect this to the waterbox.
there are no mods necessary to the 08 pipe, you just need a shop to make the jacket.

Just wondering if the X-pipe would be easier. I'd like to be able to keep the gpr battery box without modification for storage and fire extinguisher. It hits the J-pipe and requires a little cutting to fit the J-pipe.

After getting an X-pipe from work and trial fitting it on my boat I can see why Mike had to make the reducer water pipe. The 4" coupler is to big to get by the S/C and the inner liner of the boat on the side.
I like the look of Mike's install but still not sure if the S/C is removable without taking the pipe out.

it is possible. I actually verified it last night when I was putting my ski back together. only real issue with it is where to put the o2 sensor if you plan on using one.
