    2005 SeaDoo GTX engine

    How much am I looking at paying to replace the engine in a 2005 SeaDoo GTX. I'm looking for a good estimate for buying the new engine (using the current one as the core) and paying a qualified mechanic to remove the old one and install the new one correctly. Also an approximate turn around time (I was guessing 2 weeks..??) I currently have a 2007 Yamaha VX Deluxe and it's just too slow for me and have been looking for a SeaDoo GTX (or FX HO), but there's NOTHING in my area (surprising as you can usually pull up 2 dozen ski's for sale around Pensacola). I'm guessing it's because they never flushed it and it was used in salt water, but that's a guess. Also if anyone knows of a good independant SeaDoo mechanic in the Pensacola FL area they could recommend. Thanks

    So I left out that I found a 2005 GTX with a blown engine and was thinking of making an offer, but before I do I want to know how much it will cost to get it running again as that will greatly affect if I do make an offer and how much that offer will be. Sorry about that...

    This all depends on how much damage was done...

    If the block and head are salvagable then you are probably looking at around $1,500-$2,500
    If the motor is completely trash you could be looking at $3-4K...this also depends how much your mechanic will charge you.

    Also, any other damage to the machine or drive train-- jet pump, pto bearing, gauge functioning, cosmetic damage that detracts from the value or you want fixed at time of rebuild.
