    Older GP1200 Engine in a newer GP1200R hull?

    So here is the deal I own a 2000 GP1200r Boat with a bad motor and a 1999 GP1200 engine. My goal is a budget build so letís assume I am in both the engine and the boat for nothing. Is a non-power valve gp1200 engine worth swapping into the said 1200r boat? I do have man skills (currently work in a composites shop) so the scope of the project does not concern me. However investing the time and ending up with a turd does. Any thoughts would be helpful.

    the 1200 r motor makes 155 horsepower and its hull is slightly larger then the gp but is better handling

    im not sure of the horsepower of the gp1200 motor but i dont think it will make to big a difference if ur down a few horsepwer get some F/As reed stuffers and mill ur head

    or look around if anyone on here wants to trade their 1200r motor for ur 1200 motor
