No sir!
It has to be a RXP or RXT system. The GTX used cast pistons, lower compression, and a different supercharger system.

You might need to wait for folks to start bumping into each other with rxp/rxt's in the summer before you find a smokin deal. The only other thing, is look for somebody to sell a delaminating RXP on GH.

$6500 for a complete, perfectly working stock ski would be a fair deal for a damaged hull on a perfect mechanical boat. You need damn near everything out of it.

I know of a part that your going to need and its impossible to get accept from one place and its exactly $88.48 and you really cant build one with out it. If you started now you could have it ready by the bug. You might have to settle for a ride on the spitfire!

oh yea... there's a delaminated 04 RXP up by me... pretty low hours.. 50 i believe, above the rub rail and in the engine compartment are MINT looks showroom condition... not that you care about the hull parts anyways

i'm trying to smack the guy down in price, but i got a lead on something else HOPEFULLY, if it works out... all the way up here in NY tho.. would you be interested in it if i wind up not pursuing it?

guy was looking for 5k for it ... ski, cover, and trailer

setup a NA 4-tec motor in the GPR... sit pretty for a little while with 155HP... then put a cam, low compression pistons, and some head work on it and put a turbo on that motor....

those NA 4-tec motors will be nicer for turbo conversions if you wanna do a turbo GPRXP just dont hold your breath as to when you'll see a kit retailed
how cheap did you find that 02 4-tec for?
