    Parts needed to convert from later model 08+ to early model exhaust

    I am working on my doo swapped 15f build and I am limited on space for my exhaust. Before I buy any parts I need to figure out a plan for the exhaust setup.

    I currently am using a 2008 rxt-x 255 as my donor and I have the entire exhaust setup from that ski. The exhaust is really tight to the hull and supercharger with that setup. I was considering using a shorter waterbox (tdr or something) but I am concerned about the flex coupler rubbing on the hull. The other option is to swap to the j-pipe setup which may be more forgiving space wise but I don't know for sure.

    Pictures here

    What are my options for each setup and what makes the most sense in this case?

    Thanks,

    Sean

    If you do decide to go j pipe all you need is the pipe waterbox and the v band as the 2 styles are different. It's real easy I did the opposite on my 07

    Thanks for the reply, that is good news. I placed an order for a cheap j-pipe last night just to see if it works. I will probably put fresh eyes on the problem when its delivered later this week.

    I will probably also try to cut up the stock waterbox and see if I can squeeze the 08+ style box in.
