    230 Supercharger in 215

    I did some research but could not find any pertinent information. Are there any advantages to installing the maintenance free 230 superchargers into a 215 ski? I see that the housing and blade design look very similar to the x-charger. Obviously they are not serviceable but so they put out similar boost to a x-charger?

    The 2019 and older 230 superchargers are the exact same superchargers used on 255/260 skis. Sea Doo has been calling them "maintenance free", they are not! They still need to be rebuilt every 100 hours just like all the other 185/215/255/260 superchargers. In 2020 they switched to the same style supercharger as the 300 skis and they call that "maintenance free"

    to answer your question, yes there is a big advantage in going with the 230/255/260 supercharger in the 215, you also need to upgrade to the 42 lb fuel injectors

    If you wanted to upgrade to a 2020 230 supercharger, or 2017-2020 300 supercharger you'd also need to change the flywheel gear and do a modification to your PTO housing. That kit is offered here in the GreenHulk Store

    Jerry, thank you for your input on this. I appreciate you confirming my suspicions. Do they just detune the 230s then? It looks like the earlier ones were still the 1503 with x charger and external intercooler much like the 255/260

    Yes, they are just detuned 260's. Same exact supercharger!

    I just picked up an x charger off of a 2019 230 with 5 hours. I now have to decide if I want to switch this out for my Riva Gen2.

    I am also looking at fitting a 2018 230 supercharger to a 215.
    Do you also need to change to an external intercooler on a 06 rxt 215 or could I keep the internal one for a season and then upgrade.
