Might try a pipe or limiting water to the pipe, pump wedge, Impeller, Pump blue print might help but its a lot of work and may disappoint you. The way I was able to get more speed was 1 mph at a time. Lot of work and time. Need to weigh the work and time VS money. GSXL makes 25 more Hp and does just over 60 if you get a good one. So you need to make 25 more or loose 50 lb. just get a Ski made in the last 5 years and try to make the goal 65 or 70
Look at the pump as a Dynomometer RPM goes up you made more HP hit the revlimiter or near the limit increase pitch or decrease nozzle size them work on getting the rpm back. The speed will come

I am in the same boat with you on a 97 XP. I don't like the big heavy stuff that they make now. I am looking at a Group K sleeper or a level 1 from PPG. I have heard good things about the nozzle change that you did when included with the 17/22 swirl prop. Did you see much improvement on the bottom with the nozzles?

yeah im always looking on the group k website for idear's on tweaking my ski.i take it you've read it.if not i'll do you a link.it's a great read.i just dont have the money to spend loads i like doing little tweeks
as for the nozzles,its more about top end.but ive yet to try it on glass,saturday had abit of chop.but she did fill abit faster.i want to try my R & D grate to see what happens to the top end still got the standard prop on,as 96xpss said that was the best for my ski!

Remove the grate and find a pump wedge, then you will be over 60.
You should also make sure the butterflies/throttle plates in the carbs are sychronized, and that you are actually getting wot. I really think you should be at 59 currently...if it is properly tuned, and the stock prop is pitched properly, in good condition, and with a good wear ring.
My cousin's box-stock 96 XP GPS'd 58.2 with me on it last year, and it has a JD grate (which slows it down).

Robert what exactly does a pump wedge do? extend the pump or move it up? I was reading about a pump wedge that might be avaliable for my 96xp?
