Some slight changes for 07. Don't personally care for the new tower, although it does look solid. I guess you have to let some things grow on you...

Before anyone asks, there are no mufflers on the boats in 2007. The tips seen in the pictures above are designed to act like mufflers as they have baffels welded inside.

Are the billet walk through and stainless/chrome exhaust tips standard or optional "bling"?

Between the cats on the manifolds and the baffels in the tips it provides as much sound dampening as the mufflers did?

Are the gearheads going to be easily able to modify the tips to knock the baffles out? (I hope not)

Same X-2 as 2006 Same Hull Same Weight

20 foot on a single axle trailer.

Heck BU puts a 21 footer on a single... MC's 21 X-15 comes with a tandem.

GOOD knowledge for upcoming boat shows !!!

It would take a lot of work from what I could tell...but it could be done.

Don't think you have to worry about that for a while. Gearheads don't buy new boats, take it from me, they buy boats that need help and get in 'em cheap.

I do realize what you asked; however, my point is and was that a 20' boat is about the same length as most tournament ski boats and as such the weight would be close as well. In this case the boat weighs 3350lbs or 300lbs more than the boat it replaced and only 550lbs more than a PS197. So yep she'll do just fine on a single axle trailer.

Given our history with trailers this does seem like a fair question though;)

Now that the EFI is closed loop, should be able to get power gains out of improving the engine's breathing. Knocking the baffles out or drilling them would be one of the first things I'd consider...but decreasing exhaust backpressure isn't always a great idea, especially in something with a short exhaust system anyway. Like a boat. These things are already pretty free-breathing. One might end up pi$$ing off the neighbors only to get standing waves that impair fuel delivery.

The new engine.....by the specs it needs 93 octane gas?

Could that be true?

If its not true, what octane is it made to run on.


The marina on my lake only has regular gas, any engine that takes anything other than regular gas is a no can do for me.

MC has put the 07 Owner's Manual up on their website http://www.mastercraft.com/manuals/2007%20Owners%20Manual.pdf

I don't know how many of the pics, though, are of '07 models. The X-2 pic, for example, was an 06.

There is a nice pic of Maeghan Major on p. 78.

Soon to see hypertech ad's in Ski Magazines!

Most of our X-2's go out on single axle trailers, sooooo much easier to get into a garage for winter storage.

I want to ride behind one sooo bad.

Thanks for the pics - hype fo lizife.

about the tower....... Are those black areas a paint or a coating or a plastic inlay that's bonded to the aluminum? Consumers want to know
