    Question about SeaDoo 2stroke hull Engine mount locations

    I just hapened to notice in this picture that in a 2000 GTX melinium edition (which was a 2stroke), has a tripod engine mount setup that looks to the naked Eye to be the same as the 4tec. Knowing how SeaDoo likes to reuse things, are the motor mount locations the same as on a 4tec?

    I think the front mount is a little the the right, while the 4-tec has it to the left...

    Here's a pic to tell...

    I had this idea a while back. Even if the fronts are the same, the rear two mounts are too close together for the 4-tec.

    Another issue with putting the 4-tec in a GSX (or in an RX as I wanted to do) is that those hulls are probably not efficient enough to handle the speed these new motors can put out. Not to mention the extra weight over the 951 motors.
