    Hi Tippy, that's a tough one. I would suggest contacting Chester here in the community for some help on that.
    Seeing it's your first post, Chester is a ski mechanic and comes highly recommended.

    Good luck with your project.

    gtx-l or gtx-rfi? i picked up a 99gtx-rfi for a friend about 3 years ago for $4000 and 39 hours on it. literally mint condition. ski has run like a charm since. i wouldn't offer more than $1000-$1500 for something with a blown engine. you could easily be looking at $1500 for a rebuild if you do most of the work yourself. $3000 if you get a dealership to do it.
