400 HP, new engine and tranny. This would be replacing an 01 X-star. Good move, or bad move?

Nice boats if their equipped right.

I'm not much of a fan of the Illusion tower or the Hammerhead. The Illusions were made by Metcraft, same bozo company who made POS towers for Calabria & Tige. Now their out of business because their quality sucks. The Illusions tend to go thru bushings & pin inserts, especially when you load them up with gear.
The Hammerhead has gobs of torque. But they tend to use oil..... like a quart or two every tank of gas. Just the nature of the beast.

If that is the VLX with the 98 in beam it might be worth it but if its the 93 inch beam vlx I would not do it.

Love my '07 VLX, traded up from an '04 Nauti 210. I haven't had any issues with my Illusion tower, so no complaints so far. The boat has been great. There is a 3-year difference in my trade, so there were obvious improvements made to the VLX over that time period. The quality of the BU is great and I like the deep interior more than the shallow Nautiques.

I'd say go for it and don't look back...
