    ...
    Best on gas? MSX 110 or MSX 150 with Desperado ECU reflash
    Might even be better than the two cylinder Ficht Virage i, or the 700cc SL models

    ...
    Best distance?(cruising range) Probably the same reflashed MSX 110 or MSX 150, stock 67.4 liter (17.8 US gallons) fuel capacity
    ...
    Most expensive? Weber engine needing rebuild
    ...
    I would like to see more Sea-Doo 3 cylinder 4-Tec engines in Polaris hulls. That may be the biggest step forward for these hulls, on multiple fronts.

    Reliable power, plenty of spare parts, lots of service sources, well known engine. Compact and not much heavier than a domestic 1200 engine (including all intake and exhaust components).

    Good fuel economy during cruise, plenty of power when you want to fly.

    [QUOTE=jkindt;1600361]Quickest? Bowsniper's Pro785!


    NOT! Lugs, Pro micks or Kevins.. we would need a straight line race to be sure. Maybe yours if you get that running right.

    Maybe I need more RED on the ski. Red means FAST!

    So Tx... you said the 2000 SLX 1200 is the fastest ski? I have one myself. Why would this ski be the fatest? Wouldn't a Matrix or a 1200 Pro be faster? The Pro 1200's hull is better designed isn't it? About the same HP..

    Were talking stock skis...
