    Need an engine for an 08 FXHO! What engines are interchangeable??

    Hey guys, new to the forum.. I recently picked up a ski cheap, with a blown engine.. Looking for a long block.. (Holes in case and busted head)

    Will the VX cruiser block work? IF so, does anyone have one for sale or know where to get one?
    I know SBT sells longblocks, but i dont want to spend 3Gs on a engine from a company i dont trust..

    THANKS!

    2008 FXHO is the FX160 engine (1052cc) which is the same displacement as a VX110 engine. The 140 is different.

    refer to this thread:

    The gist of the thread is, you can use the VX block with some changes. Can you salvage 3 out of 4 pistons and rods and the camshafts? If so, if you have a vx110 running long block you can make it happen with minimal ebay purchases (a rod and piston). I am going down this road at some point for my conversion GPR because I simply can not find a reasonably priced FXHO motor in central GA.

    I should have everything you need if you decide to build a HO engine from a VX Crankcase or core engine.

    PM me if you are interested.

    Thanks

    Okay cool. SO I have 3 rods and pistons that are OK. crank is toast. Will the external shit just bolt up to the VX block? and besides the cams, the heads are identical?

    Dude the link I posted goes into every single detail. There are a few mods to the block. Even if you have to sign up at.pwctoday to see the pics, its 100% worth your time.
