    New member just purchased 07 F-12X

    Purchased a new 07 leftover F-12X a few months ago. Had a 96 SL780 and 97 SL900 before. Not much else to say other than as soon as the warranty is up i'm going to have to do some add ons to try to pick up some hp.

    I'll probably start out with the intake grate first, and i thought about doing the water methanol kit instead of going the intercooler route. But to be completely honest i'm not sure yet, i might up grade the valve springs as well as everyone seems to say that's a weak spot in these engines.

    Supposidly it helps keep you hooked up and helps the cavitating. There's another new thread that explains it some. I'm still pretty new to all of this stuff.

    If you are just doing macsboost you shouldn't have any problems with the springs. The soft rev kicks in at 6500rpms so it won't over rev. If you are going to get an ECU then change the springs. Nitro Shark has the best springs.

    Although the ski will hook up better with a new grate, you won't gain any real speed. In fact you may lose a mile or two. You may want to start with the Nitro kit, Macboost or Jims Alpha kit to get more pep but I think the grate is the last place to start in my opinion and you know we all have one. You have to throw a lot of money at it for some minimum gains. It's a great ski and I think you'll enjoy it as is.

    Cole's right, really good springs if you feel the need to replace.
