    Oh, yeah......I hope ya got a lot of $$$$$ You can Blue print the engine, But you still need the electronics to run it and match it and tune it. It's not like the good old days anymore

    I'd say in comparison to the other mod's available, the cost of blueprinting is high and gains are small.

    Just a little info. & folks can perceive it as they want. Our T-X dropped a valve at Nationals back in September. We were done tuning & were just checking rideplate shimming when the valve dropped. My engine had light internals, balanced, exhaust matching, ported & polished head, etc... We borrowed an engine out of another boat that was a stock engine, but the head did also have a lightweight valve train. I hung our exhaust & intake on it so the only difference was the engine & head. Note: I lost 400 rpm's between the two engines & heads. Had to re-prop to get the rpm's up.

    You don't need programmable ignition. Poppa Dawg is using a plug and play ECU on his ski.

    If you are going to spend all that money to blueprint the engine just for better reliability then don't bother. The stock bottom end is already extremely reliable. I'm throwing 24 psi of turbo boost on a stock bottom and and have had zero issues with it.

    I would only blueprint an engine on a very highly modified ski.
