    Nozzle sizing

    Does anyone know or recommend what is the best nozzle size in diameter for all round acceleration/top speed? On a 8100 rpm 260 hp s3 hull?

    What would be the best size nozzle for acceleration 0-60 mph?
    What would be the best size nozzle for top speed?


    And does anyone know how much speed/acceleration change there is from different nozzles? Is it pointless to change them? Can you actually notice the change?


    Thanks in advance!

    Any machine shop should be able to mill the stock nozzle to use the Riva reduction rings & set screws........

    in the old days...for lack of a better way to describe it. they used to weld a ring into a stock nozzle. you swapped the whole nozzle...

    Is the stock nozzle too thin, too short, or both?

    & i weld new fitings...now it fits to both 255 & 260 models...but you have to
    use an old style steering nozzle also.i used a skat trak also with rings...now the best
    overall performace i had with 84-85 ring...
