    215 hp motor swap - 2008 motor into 2006 hull

    I had a question on a hull I just bought, it is a 2006 RXT 215 hull with a blown motor. I sourced a running 2008 215 motor.
    1) what will i have to change on the motor, drive system or hull to do the swap?
    2) can i use the 2006 ecm and computer and direct plug in to 2008 motor
    3) will this be a direct bolt in, plug in and go ?
    4) am I missing anything, what do I need to change or do to make this happen?

    thanks

    Someone will correct me if I am wrong, but the 06 and 08 should be the exact same. They both have the same ecu and sensors, so it will be a direct swap, no change for anything.

    Everything should plug right up, worst case scenario you have to swap the engine harness off of the blown 06 into the 08 engine, but i don't think you will even have to do that.

    The major thing that i would recommend is a good engine alignment, if the pump to hull alignment is poor it would be a good time to fix that too. There are a few good threads on alignment issues, while you have it apart save yourself a headache later and align the whole thing properly.
