Look at the mods on my 185 in my signature. 4" air intake is a HUGE improvement over stock, for acceleration, hole shot, and over all performance.

RXT fpr ($30), RXT ECU ($200 used), RXT Flywheel $(80 used), and SCer gear change ($50) and you will be in love all over.
Yes, it takes a bit of know how and some basic understanding of mechanics, but it will wake your boat up. Oh and a prop pitch
to the new 8200

Gotcha, I was thinking prop dia was smaller on the 185 (my bad, been awhile since I had the 185 ski).
You Will have to change prop to fit RXT driveshaft.
Still would be Good to upgrade from the plastic pump.

Here is your answer:
Riva Pump Wedge, 2-degree/155mm ID, SD, RXP/RXT/GTX [RS23050] - $119.95 : Zen Cart!, The Art of E-commerce
The wedge goes in between the pump and venturi nozzle, raising the nozzle 2 degrees UP, which raises the bow of ski higher, allowing the ski to handle better and gets the ski riding mostly on the ride plate. It is a "poor man's" VTS (variable trim system) with only one setting......... It DOES work on a GTX as advertised.
The 1972 Chevelle was a 3 year father-son project, total frame off rebuild, we are very proud of it! I helped a buddy do a 72 also, another 3 year project.

Have a look at the Stage 1 kit for your ski
Stage 1 kit for RXT-X [RY-RPM-RXTX-1] - $1,170.95 : Zen Cart!, The Art of E-commerce
All the components of the kit are matched together to improve both performance and handling.
