    Default Convert DI to CARB

    Has anyone converted a DI ski to CARB rather than fixing it?

    are the engines similar enough?

    I'm looking for a 01 RX Carb and can only find the DI ones...

    can you just remove all that stuff and it would work (adding carbs obviously) or is it too different?

    Just curious...
    Buying ONE more blown 951 ski so I can get rid of my last engine... looking for a 2000-2002 GTX or XP.

    Can't say I've heard of anyone doing it... but I'm sure it's possible. BUT... remember... you will need a new MEPM also, since that one thinks it's controlling a fuel injection system.

    I guess if I was going to do it... I would buy a stand-alone ignition system to make it easy, and ditch the MPEM.

    BUT... if you buy a Di ski... why not just run it that way until there is a problem?? They are very reliable... it's just hard/expensive to fix once they have an issue.

    PM or post for help. Don't leave questions in my profile box. (i never check it)

    I'm not going to be able to do vinyl or carbs for a while. Starting my new job is taking a lot of time

    even if the MPEM thinks it's controlling the injectors, and you remove them...? I guess it would throw an error code?

    No, I agree, if it works, run it until otherwise, I've just never had a DI ski, I've ridden them, they seem quieter, and accelerate very smoothly, and start easily! I just worry about expensive repairs...

    Grizz is correct. Engines (cylinders, head, etc.) are different.

    how many hours are on the rxdi's that you are looking at? I have almost 200 hours on mine and have never had a problem with the DI. Also it gets better fuel milage than my gsx limited (carb) that also has the 951.

    If you wanted to trick the computer... measure the resistance on a known good injector, then replace the injector with the equivilant resistor. I have little experience with the 951 or DI but i dont think a different head would affect much...if you have the parts, it may be an interesting conversion for a rainy day. And if it doesnt work, just swap it back to DI
