    Talking whats next?

    okay guys I'm at a stage 1 except rideplate and sponsons
    next step should be Rideplate and sponsons? or supercharger wheel and power shot? (b1) because I dont need anymore power than that for now I want more top speed my acceleration is fine but the ski seems like it needs more power to spin the prop now on top end. goal is low 70's what should be next I know both rideplate set correctly or supercharger wheel would put me at 70+ I am thinking of upgrading the intercooler as well.? help guys

    I would go with supercharger upgrade and powershot.

    Lots more acceleration and more top speed when you do this.

    When you say "stage one", does that mean a Solas 13/22 prop also?
    If so, like Jerry said, Powershot, SC wheel.... and a new prop.

    From my tests, the power shot does nothing but make you burn more gas..I bought one to test and it didnt give me any gains so i thought it might be faulty but then i ordered a nxt one and same thing...
    for example and this was back to back testing, i ran a 77mph with the powershot and 77.1mph without it so my suggestion would be a prop, intercooler and B1. you can get a riva intercooler or i can make one up like whats on the Seth's Monster

    Are you bypassing the boost limiter then? I lost speed with the intake manifold upgrade and bigger wheel because I was in the boost limiter and lacking fuel(and on the limiter). I put the powershot on and picked up big.Just to note I was still in the boost limiter when I changed the prop. If you have the boost limiter bypassed what are you doing for fuel?

    Im glad it worked out for you but its not working down here maybe cause its always hot but ive never seen any gains from it in speed.
    i have nothing bypassing the boost and nothing for fuel upgrades.
    with c3 and b1 speeds were up 75+mph without using the the powershot on FZ and SHO.

    How much boost were you seeing with and without the powershot? I'm having trouble understanding why you can go just as fast without the powershot as you can with. Without the powershot your boost should be limited to around 7 psi.

    Not doubting your results. Just trying to understand.

    You need to be measuring your air/fuel ratio!

    The powershot is not going to give you gains. It's going to keep your engine from running lean at the higher boost levels and it's going to bypass the boost limiter so you can get higher boost levels out of the C3-11 or B1 supercharger impellers. If you are running either one of these supercharger upgrades you really need to be running the powershot.
