S2 Ep. 13: Completely Rebuilt Yamaha FX SVHO Reveal

What came in as Big Blue goes out as Orange Fury.

After completely revamping this 2014 Yamaha FX SVHO Waverunner, we bring in owner Jed Schreibman to the Babcox Garage to shock him with what is essentially a new ski. Thanks to SBT, we updated every aspect of this jet ski from the engine to the seat cover and tons of other aspects. Watch to see the transformation from “Big Blue” to “Orange Fury.”

This season of Project X is brought to you by SBT, the largest PWC aftermarket parts company in the world.
