    2005 RXP

    What would it cost to throw a new engine into a 2005 RXP. Fully installed. Should I be looking at rebuilt engines, are they reliable?

    How much of the new engine do you need? short block? long block? full motor with electronics? How many parts you need and how much work you intend to do yourself will affect the cost greatly. If "simply" have a cracked block and a bent rod and intend to do all the work you self you could be out as little as $1500. If you have a bare hull and are hiring a shop to do the labor it could run you over $11,000.

    The only high volume rebuilder on the internet is SBT. They have a 4TEC engine called "Sea Doo 4TEC Premium Engine" for $2700 plus a rebuildable core. They say it can be used in a GTX SC, RXP or RXT. But, it does not say which pistons (cast or forged) are in the engine. Since the only psitons listed on the site are the cast pistons for the GTX SC, I would have to guess the rebuilt engines contain the same. And if put in an RXP or RXT they would last for a little while. Most on here will recommend Rotax rebuilt engines, but you might look in the classifieds section for a used engine... Ron
