    Fxho 160 conversion to Sho

    Right I have fxho160 which I like the hull better than nano hull . I might have a chance to buy a fzr with smashed hull ( find out soon ) will it be an easy swap to put the Sho engine into my fxho 16" hull or will there be loads of work . I know wiring harnes will need to be swapped but will I be able to use my 160 clocks and what about the pump area

    Can the SHO Engine fit in THE FX HO? Sure, anything is possible. Why bother?

    I had an Sho didn't like the nano hull thought it was rubbish in choppy water but speed was good on flat . If I put the Sho in fxho 160 hull surely it will be win win fast on flat and good in choppy water

    You will need a different drive shaft as a minimum
    Other parts may or may not line up
    You will have to unbolt everything and try it

    Or the other possibility it gpr Sho conversion but the amount of work id have to get someone else to do it for me in the UK . I've look at a few threads and it looks like a lot of work involved

    The motor will bolt right in!!! I did it in 2011...

    You can use the same ho pump. I had the motor off a FX-SHO so the gauges fit perfectly as well.

    BTW, I do agree with you on the FX-HO Hull being wayyyyyyy better....

    Good luck, Julio...
