    New SHO from the crate to 80+.

    I had a customer deliver me a brand new 2009 SHO Cruiser in the crate which I unpacked, set up as stock and took it out for an hours running in. At the end of the hour I GPS'd 66 mph peak and best speed.
    Return to the workshop and gutted her out.
    JE Pistons in R and D sleeves.
    Carrillo Rods.
    Riva Intercooler
    Riva Supercharger wheel
    Riva inlet manifold upgrade kit
    Riva rising rate reg and larger injectors
    Riva exhaust kit
    R and D ride plate
    R and D Intake grate ( the only one I would trust )
    R and D stuffer kit
    Custom water routing using Riva kit and R and D kit.
    Motec ECU
    Riva air intake with out the pre filter.
    Skat prop
    Riva sponsons
    Rad 4 Racing Pump outlet reduction rings



    A week of install and fine tuning each area of the ski and we were ready for some run in time. Two easy hours on the ski and a few full heat cycles and we were ready to start with the GPS.
    First run 80.3. Some more work with the Motec and final run for the day 83.4 at 15 lbs and 8550 rpm. Not bad for a cruiser!! Lots left in her which we are getting into now. Talk about a sleeper, she looks stock but has a bit of a bark to the exhaust note when cruising which is the give away at the beach. Anyway 5 hours on the ski and I had to hand it over to the owner which was a shame as I am hooked on the SHO's now.

    Highlights of the build were that all the supplied parts fitted quite nice but the hiccups along the way were the Riva supplied block off for the main water in line which is a dead cap on the flush T was holed and gave us a hull full of water and then the Stock Yamaha water line from the exhaust manifold to the reg rec unit split due to an internal floor in the rubber which made her fill up quicker than the titanic.....quick dash to shore and plenty of bilge pump. And lastly a new coil was required as one was split on the poured top which was causing issues....would have been a warranty if it was a stocker but thats the risk you take for playing with it.
    I cant say enough about how good the Motec is with the data logging, do a run, check the data, make your changes and away you go again.
    Special mention to Motec Pete and Mike for input on our project.

    Lots of pics to come....

    I also spit the water line from the rectifier to exhaust manifold. Im pretty sure the issue was leaving my thermostat in and adding all the extra cooling. IVe blocked off my extra cooling line at the moment. Id be careful with that cooling set up, lot of backpressure with that thermostat in.

    Thanks for the feedback on that one Doug. I may restrict one of the cooling lines and watch the engine data to see if there is any temp creep in doing so.

    After almost sinking my ski in the chuck...i had to mention it. Worst feeling ever, had water up to my oil filter when i finally made it to shore.
