I can vouch for this I was on this ski and Im curious on this myself. I dont know much about the 2 stroke but I did do a GPS run on this ski and the low end seems a little rough but once it goes it seems to run strong but only tops out at 54.0 His Dad has an Identical ski with the same mods. We didnt get a GPS run on his ski but he was definitely pulling away.

Did you check to see if you had sucked anything up or if anything was wrapped around the driveshaft?

You are running 91-93 octane aren't you? it's needed since you said the timing is advanced or it will detonate and eat a piston.

and yes you do have a wear ring. also the 130hp engine should give you a stock speed of around 62 mph.
did you suck up any rocks or debris?if yes it might have dammaged the wear ring and prop.

yes i am running 93 octane gas , i have sucked up rocks before but have not checked to see how bad that it is

you think that it would throw my top speed of that muck with the wear ring messed up or the impellor?

What RPM are your spinning ?
Have you checked the rave valves ?
