Question Bravo 1 X drive???

hey guys-
i've got something broken in my bravo 1 drive on my boat. not really wanting to spend the time waiting for it to get repaired part by part. I have a friend with a bravo 1 X drive with 100hrs on it....is this the same thing? i'm as clueless as it gets! haha. and IF it is, whats a used drive like that run $ wise?

The Bravo X has stronger upper gears and is stronger than a regular Bravo 1.

Probably a silly question, but is the other drive the same gear ratio?

im getting ready to have to put my 2nd set of gears in the upper. 2nd set in 2 months. i'm really getting sick of this crap, esp when the gears cost 1200 a pop! anyone have a good, used x drive lower? i want a FULL set up. i hope to just unbolt, one and attach the other! OR, perhaps does someone have a bravo1 (not the x) with good upper gears that they wanna sell cheap???

I just sold a mint condition Bravo X with 100 hrs for $2,500. Gives you an idea of what they're worth.
