    96 Seadoo XP 800 engine in 95 SPX

    Hi all, I got the chance to buy a running 96 XP 800 with no title for $100! My question is, is it possible to mate the 800 in the 95 SPX that has the 657? The motor mounts look different (SPX has 4, XP has 3) but has anyone successfully swapped the engines?

    Motor mounts are different. You will have to glass in new mounts in order to make this work. Lots of guys have swapped in 800 into skis that originally had 720's in them. This is especially popular with the HX crowd.

    I actually ended up getting a title for it after all. The XP was missing a lot of parts (jet pump, starter relay, fuel tank was cracked) swapped all that over from my 95 SPX, rebuilt carbs and put in new fuel lines and boy does she RIP!
