Great looking boat and I am sure someone out there is looking for a similar setup. GLWS!
Normally I'd agree.

But when anyone says the RTP is on par with the MCX and that MC cruise is just as good as PP well then something needs to said.

Looks like a great boat. Someone is going to get a good deal.

I made the statement having owned both engines... and making the statement to not let the RTP engine turn a buyer away because it is a great motor. Obviously the MCX motor is a little more hot but not many will be able to tell a difference. I had this discussion with the dealer before I purchased the X1 as I was coming from the MCX. (And no it wasn't a sales pitch as I was looking at other boats with the hotter motor.)

Good luck to the seller... Looks like a great boat!

Not to take it too far but fundamentally they are very similar motors. Different intake manifold and a few other odds and ends but more the same than different... minus the shiny intake.

Bottom line both GM derived 5.7L V8's....

Cam, intake and exhaust are different. The tune is different as well; I would say both the fuel and spark tables in the tune are different. What is the same is block, bore, stroke and heads.
