New, bigger intercooler
New Solas impeller
New nozzle rings (2)
Total price = $4,599.00

They need to make up the money quick because there are so few out there to be able to sell the kits to. I don't see how it could be priced over $2200 for the kit.

seen the kit in action this weekend, also saw the superstock kit in action this weekend,
jsu fully done two stroke sxr ski= 20 to 24 thousand depending on who you are, rebuilds every weekend to prevent major demolition, around 59-62 mph
hs limited ski = 18 grand, oil changes every 25 hours or around every 8 weekends, around 61-64 mph with better acceleration
hs superstock=20 grand, oil changes every 8 hours or three weekends of racing
68-72mph with insane acceleration
I am not backing the high cost of that kit, I am just trying to put it in perspective, yes I think the kit should go for around 2 grand but everything we buy from austria is real expsensive because their is only around 400 of the boats made so far, their will be around 120 of the boats in the united states buy the end of 2007 so prices are not gonna go down for parts, but when some smart cookie like klipper starts matching up parts and getting aftermarket power from
local auto parts dealers the price of hs horsepower will go way way down. I cannot wait for more people to be like klipper and get into this hs hopping up habit and these things will happen
One more thing to put things in perspective, I have watched my buddies spend countless thousands rebuilding their superstocks every weekend and never getting to the 60mph mark
while I am going just as fast as them with better acceleration on my stock hs boat which only
requires 8 dollars worth of pump gas to go buoy riding every time I go, I did blow one sensor after six months of three days a week but thats it, and I did one oil change, cannot wait to have two hs boats and then me and my wife can spend 16 dollars to go riding buoys

I have raced hopped up rxt's and rxps and my acceleration on my stock hs just kills them, they evenutally pass me with there high top speeds

Well this is what they got on this day, with those parts strapped on a stock unit.
I've ridden a Superstock Octane from Randy that GPS' all day long at 62mph. A buddy of mine bought it and had it shipped here... $8000, still has it, and it rips.

They might as well make a little money while they can. I don't think the company will even exist a year or a year and a half from now based on what they have done so far.
