    06 GTX performance questions??

    Hi,
    New to the forums. Have a new GTX 155 hp version. Good top end at 60 mph or so, but if I try to do some turns, it seems like the thing is a dog, has minimal low end torque. It is fine out of the hole pulling a tube, etc, but power turns are lame. What can I do to it to improve the speed in turns and the low end grunt.

    Kurt

    i'd try doing a stg1 kit from riva, or an intake grate and impeller. that will help keep the water fed at high speed turns.

    that is half way the nature of these bigger boats in the tight turns... but a Intake grate and aftermarket prop will cedrtainly make a big difference in the machines low-end torque and speed out of the turns just as "dropped" mentioned.

    This is true, even with the mods we have on our ski, it still bites down in the turns and speed drops rapidly, aside from all things being equal, I think the longer hulls have something to do with it...PR...
