    Id leave it alone for now and get it up and running. the x motor is a great platform and at 85hrs its still fresh unless its been, modded, misstreated, injested water or had another failure?

    If you want to go bigger then look at head bolts............. and the rest!

    it looks like it injested some salt water as the supercharger has a film of crap on the inside ,the hoses have the same , intercooler on one side has salt covering it .. The back of the intake valves have slight rust too .... The 4" inlet hose has holes everywhere .. thats why im thinking of just having a look . would hate to get it going and BANG ....

    That all sounds normal for a ski that's been riding in salt water and no doubt was not fogged.
    But yeah if you don't know the history would be worth pulling the head for a look. What does the oil look like?

    Should slide right out once everything is undone. Sometimes they stick a bit at the water supply washer/ gasket.
