Default Change Bravos to XR or XZ???

I blew up an outdrive this weekend. I have a 38 Donzi with Bravos and when I rebuild them I want the new XZ or XR drives.

Can I use the same upperhousing and what is the differences between the XR and XZ drives?

Which gears should I go with???

Hey Jason, Thanks for the info. I have the 5 year Z care warranty on my boat so money nots the issue, its getting them to cover the repair.

Winter been good in Austin, Been in the boat every weekend for the past month.

XZ's are a little faster than the XR's

From my experience Z-Care will try to find reason not to pay for the Outdrive. Just keep on them till they do.

Personally I would go with the XZ's then unless your planning on more power in the future.

I haven't heard of the XZ's blowing up with stock power and I still hear some problems with the XR. I have an XR on my Pantera with a 575sci. no problems but only 10 hours too.

Sea-min, your standard B1 housing can be upgraded with XZ or XR gears. The XR upgrade is a little more extensive and expensive.
