    SC gear swap?

    i need a new SC with a greenwheel or equivalent for my GTX SC 185.
    i can rebuild my stocker and have about $650 in it
    oem SC (free)
    Akit wheel (250)
    rebuild kit (300)
    labor and shipping (100ish)
    OR
    i can buy a used setup with greenwheel for $300-450...
    problem is the gear is different??
    can i just change the gear and thats it?
    how much for a new gear only?
    can i just use the gear that is on my OEM SC?

    its hard to justify spending 650 for a SC rebuild with greenwheel, when i can get something so close for 300ish!!!!

    Lextoy, I have wondered the same thing myself. I might consider an X charger and some other stuff if that's the case... Ron

    don't forget you might need to spend some extra money on your fuel system if you go to a higher boost charger like the XCharger

    but can you get the 185 gear a la carte??
    is the gear from the 08 kit different from the oem stock one i have
    (from my 03 SC)
    lots o people got SC's with 08 kit and greenwheel, lo hours.
    but if the 08 kit requires a 08 gear, then my old gear wont work...
    anyone got the 185 gear extra after upgrading?

    I don't think you can buy the gears seperately. Thought of upgrading the SC and flywheel to make it work?

    Lextoy, it looks to me like you would have to buy the '08 SC rebuild kit for $298 just for the gear, but assuming everything else is the same, you would have spare rebuild parts for the latger SC. To know 100%, the parts from both kits would need to be compared, but i don't see BRP using different parts when they can don't need to... Ron

    if u have a 03 oem gear it will fit on the 08 charger all the gears r the same thickness but if u get a 08 rxp charger i would just look for a use rxp flywheel and swap them out with new bolts you'll get more boost there

    soooooo, following that logic i can buy almost any SC and swap my old gear onto it, for example a brand new X charger!!!
    i like where this is going.
    just have to figure out if with the extra boost my stock fuel system can handle it...
    remember my ski will be spinning less rpm's to the SC due to the gear ratio.
    i'm not changing the flywheel, too much work.
