Mike's GPRXP, yes, yet another 1 !!!
Hello everyone want to start by saying thanks to everyone for all the help and info, without GH and its members this couldnt of happen so thanks again everyone. Well I kind of wanted to start the thread when I get my brackets and shalf which is in the mail and should arive this friday (thanks Mike), but with everything I've done so far I figure I'll start a thread and post everything I've done so far. Well I started with my original 2001 hull that once was a 1400, and I have a 2005 rxp setup to go in it. Im going with a closed loop system with a heat x that has 30 plates. Here's a couple of pics with whats already done.

Out of curriosity... How come you cut the inner liner out on the side? Sure does make a whole lot of extra room...

Where are you going to draw air for the S/C ? I dont have any of that in the rear and I could only run a 90 degree bend straight up and angled a little to avoid the J-Pipe.
With the external IC and the driveline it is tough to run the air upfront unless you go over the top of the motor.
Maybe the coolant bottle would be better inbetween the motor and the gas tank ?

Consider changing out the rideplate inserts before going much further.

Thanks guys for all the info and pointers, I bought the ski how it is, its cut all the way around and emptyed out for weight reduction. since the inside hull is cut like that, that is where I'll be running the riva intake for the sc, but wont know for sure untill the motor is in.
Thanks, my kids for some reason really love riding for as little as they are, and everyday they ask me if the ski is done, to go ride.
As for the inserts they are going to get changed out today along with installing the wire harness. Thanks again guys keep the info coming it really helps!!!
