    remove all the "sharks teeth" lots of people do it once they've chewed up some rocks, it wont hurt performance. but the rocks that passed your impeller may have done some not so nice things....

    Remove all of them, if your careful you can use a drum sander type attachment on a drill to finish polishing the tunnel once you cut all the teeth out. I used a floor mounted type unit when I replaced the shoe, made it real easy but be careful however you choose to do it...

    Thanks
    What about polishing jet pump I notice a lot imperfection inside jet pump
    It is time consuming process but I can do it, almost like mirror finish will I gain any performance?

    From a standpoint of physics it would make sense to me but.. on a Rec ski, I dunno.

    Im not to sure that any slight performance gain would be worth the labor, read an article awhile back by a pretty well known tuner from the west coast. He pretty much stated that it was a waste of time,
    he honed and blueprinted a pump and had the exact same pump left untouched, he did a few runs with both pumps and the ski had the same average MPH with both pump combinations.

    I know there a quite a few companies offering blueprinting services ect, Im pretty sure skat does. Guess its all up to you and that time you want to devote to it.
