    78 with just a reflash? Where did you get that from? I don't even think the SHO's will do 78 with just a reflash. The VXR is a good choice, though. I might have bought one of those instead of the FZR if they had been out. No worries about SC problems.

    You got some info wrong, I believe it has been gps at 68 stock. We will have to wait and see what a reflash does in this boat but there is nothing like a forced induction engine for modifications.

    i dont think it will do 78 with a reflash ..... In my opinion i think the fzr has a more sporty look to it and the 2011 have a upgraded clutch

    When trying to decide between the FZR or a VXR, you really need to think about what your final performance goals are.

    If you like modding and getting as much performance as possible, then a ski with the SHO engine would be a better choice.

    If you just want good performance out of a stock package with minimal upkeep, then the VXR comes to mind. But don't be disappointed when the FZs and FX SHOs start pulling away with light modding.

    It will be interesting to see how the VXR performs with a reflash, but remember, you don't just spin it higher and get more speed. You have to do mods in order to make enough power to spin it higher.

    I would get the FZ and then justify the VXR by saying it's "for Her".

    That's the way I'm heading.
