Lookin to convert a '93 40hp outboard to a jet. Iknow they make converion kits, but I was told you could pull the parts from junk yard jet skis. Sounded a bit far fetched to me. Any suggestions?

Not the same - jet skis are inline jets, outboard jets are basically centrifugal pumps - the ONLY seller for pump conversions in Outboard - they hold the patent and never licensed it to anyone, they are in San Leandro California - An inline jet is 85% efficient, and outboard pump is 70% efficient So for any jet to get the same prop horsepower as an outboard, you hsve to increase horsepower If you put a pump on a 40HP outboard your actual pump output will be 28 horsepower. Quite a drop in speed
