I have a 2001 pro x 440 that i will be putting a 98 700 motor in. What motor staps will i need to make this happen. Also, any tips from someone who has done this swap before would be appreciated.
When you say i need to change the water pump cover, what is the reason for this. I have a cover from a 2001 non ves 800... will that work?dodger said:
Problem is that the pro-x 700/800 are VES, and the '98 700 is non-VES. Pipes between VES and nonVES systems are different.dodger said:

yes I realize that....But who makes a non ves pipe(pipes) set up for a Pro-x? The ves pipe will work, I have witnessed it done. Is the engine running to full potential...prob. not. On another note you can canablize a stock 98 xc pipe or even an aftermarket set up and cut and weld to fit. A Pro-x y pipe will be a must to clear the shock tower support bar.( Keep in mind if you start modding exhausts and cutting and hacking you loose performance as well)Polaris_Parts_MN said:Problem is that the pro-x 700/800 are VES, and the '98 700 is non-VES.

Dodger you are 100% right...and you should be, your a certified polarisman... haha. i was looking at the recoil cover, not the water pump. i do have the water pump cover off a big block 800, so im good to go. What are your thoughts on the 440 gearing? Also, it time to put a new top end in my 800... do i got with oem pistons or wiscos... i know i need to watch warm up with the wiscos, but other than that... are they ok? The compression used to be 150 in each. Now its 145 in one and 125 in the other. If the cylinders are ok should i just hone them and put pistons in, or should i have them bored?polaris91 said:i put a non ves 600 into a 01 xcsp last spring for my h20x sled as said you need the newer waterpump cover so it wont hit the steering i diddnt use an airbox so im not a huge help there but we had a custom motor plate made so it was a bit stronger than using the straps but straps from a bigblock prox will work also. i would change the gearing otherwise it will be geared very low. and also as for the pipes we removed the shock tower brace so not alot of help there either but there is a few pics in my gallery of what we had to do
