RXT-X 260, opened up after 10hrs. VS 2007 RXT 215 Stage I. Out come???? Guess!!
Anyone care to take a guess at what happend when I ran a 07 RXT 215 w/ Riva StageI. Take a guess, this was not at a dead stop, but moving about 25 and nailed the ski

umm lets think about this one YOU WON, A stage 1 RXT 215 might make 220 maybe 225, a stage 1 doesnt even give the ski more boost, its just bolt ons.

Well, to be honest..I did jump him pretty good and held the lead of about 2 boat links. I was running a full tank of fuel and my RPM, not digital reading was right at 8000 and my speed was 69/70. We then were running about 65 and we both nailed them again and I am not going to lie, the 215 was right up there with me when we started at a high speed. Now we did not race out of the hole and perhaps that will be next time. I was impressed with both ski's to say the least. The 215 with the air-take and new prop run VERY well for a 2007 215. JPT, I know you keep telling me to put that air-intake on, well now I am going to do it. Where did you get yours from and should I go ahead and get a new prop as well.

Yep, you gotta get this thing to breath fresh air - it makes a huge difference! Simply order the Fizzle 4" Kanaflex intake kit from the online store. Everything you need is put together for you all in one package! The next big step, order a brand new Solas 15/22R from the online store also. "greenhulk" in coupon box for discount.....
Was your trim setting around 75% plus???? I use one notch below 50% for hole shots, then run up to 75-100 once up on plane.......
The link below is the Shop Manual pages to remove the iBR gate, VTS, pump, and change impeller.
I'll bet you a case of Shiner Bock that you will be very happy!!!!!!
One of my best frineds has two 2007 RXT's Stage 1, and he can't keep up, its NEVER close....

I'm trying to understand, why would anyone put any money in mods on these new X models until you deal with the limiter first. No matter what mods you add, doesn't the ECU pull your speed back anyway?
