    intake grate ,2.5 tilt ring ,catch can,4"air intake and get ppg to coat the inside of supercharger to tighten the clearence works great 2 to 3lbs more boost without changing wheel talk to armin also make sure to have 08 update kit installed do not run ceramic clutches get rebuilt every 100hrs may seem like alot but they spin at over 15000 rpms if it fails it cost alot more

    This is will get you the biggest return on $3000 and is just as reliable as stock IMO. This is a 215HP right? If so then.
    New X-charger $698
    Fizzle IC kit $429
    Fizzle 4"air $165
    RRFPR set to 60psi $390
    42lb injectors $200
    Opas removal plates $100
    Impeller 15/20R $299
    Homemade catch can $ 20
    Riva Grate $130
    Riva Rear exh $260
    Jims Ride plate mod $195
    Groco strainer $ 42
    Total $2928

    Don't forget the "greenhulk" discount. That'll save you a couple hundred. If you got time shop around for some used parts and save a few $$$.

    Is this the 185 HP or 215HP?? Makes a big difference on what you will spend. If it's the 185 HP you can go 70 MPH plus for less than half of what you want to spend

    a friend of mine has alot of what dduck listed him and i run neck in neck if you have a 185hp try what i listed much cheaper if you have a 215hp which i have try simple mods first like i listed i've got the holes in the ride plate filled, r&d grate,r&d tilt ring,catch can, 4" intake,08 updated sc,ppg coated mod sc,stock impeller ,opas still on ,stock exhuast i weight 285+lbs and i turn 67 to 68 at 8120rpms all day IMHO thats not bad for little money spent you can go wild and spend alot and with alot less you can still wake it up also stick with the 06 or earlier hull they lighten the hulls in 07 & 08 lot of tunnel cracking

    Never heard of any 07-08 tunnel problems on GTX's. You sure you have the right model. Thats the X models that were having the pump tunnel issues.

    sell the GTX and use that money + $3000 to get an RXP... used 07's are going for like $6000-$7000

    185 ski isnt worth the money, time or work... been there, done it...
