1989 JS 440 advice
Hi all, I have a 440 that is in need of an engine rebuild and I am looking at my options. I am considering upgrading to a 550 motor in the hull. I am also looking at a reman engines that SPT offers. The ski is stock with the exception of a west coast pipe. I realize I will probably have to improve the intake side if I go up in displacement. Additionally, I am not against rebuilding it as a 440. I am looking for advice. I know there are hull and pump differences and probably more than I am thinking about. I am a recrational rider and I want reliability. Sure a little extra power is alway nice, but is it worth the effort?
