    Can I buy a 155HP RXP and just add a SC+IC??

    I ve found some really good deals on 155hp RXPs and RXTs over here in Europe and wanted to know if I can just buy one and then plug in a SC and an intercooler. Would that work? I guess I would also have to modify the ECU though... any thoughts?

    The idea is if you buy a used 155hp ski even with 100+hours its likely to be perfect... and then you put a bit of $ to make it 70+mph ski

    I think you will need to also put in new injectors, piping for the intercooler(if your going to put in an intercooler you might as well put in aftermarket parts.) and with that said you might as well just use mods instead of oem parts. Jeffturbo or turbotodd are good guys to get advice from.

    You will need to change the pistons - the NA engines have higher compression pistons than the SC engines. You will need to change flywheel and PTO cover because a second row of teeth drive the SC (the NAs have 1 row of teeth) and the NA PTO cover does not have the mounting hole for the SC. You will need to upgrade ECUs. Most will say to save your money and just buy a 215-hp RXP or RXP-X... Ron

    Don't the 155hp models also have a plastic pump? That would have to be upgraded too.

    So if you get a 155, then replace nearly everything except the hull, it will be just like a 215

    Dont bother with the 155. The first time you come up against at 215 or 255 you will sel it. Plus if you have a SC ski you have a real good platform to mod from. R88
