    What does it cost to build an 80 MPH GPR?

    I'm in the process of buying a new RXP and getting mods for it to get it to 80 MPH. It is a fairly expensive process. Of course, buying a used ski and scraping up used parts is a lot cheaper, but I want to go new for this one. I've seen lots of people say its much cheaper to get a GPR to 80 MPH and I am wondering how much. (No you aren't going to make me change my mind, but hey who knows )

    A new 06 RXP is $10,999 MSRP and buying parts new costs about $6000 to get to a point where I have a really hard accelerating RXP that can do 80 MPH in 95 degree heat for a grand total of $17,000.

    A new 06 GPR has a $1700 head start at $9,299 MSRP. If you had a new 06 GPR and bought only new parts/services, how much would you have to spend to get to a ski that accerlates near a modded RXP and hit 80 MPH in 95 degree heat?

    (wow, how ironic is that post count?)

    Its hard to say with a gpr really.

    There are so many different ways to get to 80 mph.

    Tripples with 48 mm novis.
    single piper with big bore
    single pipe big bore with porting.

    06 gpr figure 9 grand for the ski and 3 to 5 grand in mods and you will be reallyy close to that magic 80 mph mark.

    my 2006 was 8,100 out the door after tax, but it was a special circustance because my dealer was going out of business. Surely most people are not having to pay the full MSRP for these things.

    Maybe someone will chime in and go through the other cost comparisions of porting, parts, ect... There are many SD fans that will find a way to make the SD a better buy even if it costs more than the GPR to get to 80----then vice versa.

    Dollar for dollar though, i would say the GPR would be the easiest and the cheapest---but hold that thought and see what some others say about it. Maybe someone with lots of experience will chime in on this to help.

    Jarrett,

    I paid 12000 dollars for a ski that went 83 miles per hour at mud bug.

    That ski will go faster than that.

    Yeah, I know no one pays MSRP. I mean Dallas has RXP's in the 8K range new, but since that's not the norm I want to stick with MSRP for comparison sake.

    And I'm not here to make either ski better, I'm literally just curious.

    So far we have 9,299 + 3-5k for $12,299-14,299 total. Nice.

    Ok, so 12 to 15 grand gets you to 80 mph on a gpr. Not bad!

    Jerry may be the one to answer the cost (after MSRP) to get to 80 on an RXP. He will be pretty savvy on that topic.

    There are a couple of ways to get to 80 on a RXP.

    One will cost you just under 6k and the other about 8k, but will get you there much quicker and put you in the 81 mph range (B kit SC)

    Not cheap to mod by any means, but still very reliable and will deliver unbelieavable holeshot and acceleration.

    Good deal on a used ski built by a knowledgeable tuner. Not the point of the thread.
