    what specifically do you want to know?

    the wet jet used a 61X yamaha 701, that was painted gold. single carb, good motor.

    as far as HP gains, it is like any other motor. you could change to an aftermarket pipe, larger carb, increase compression, advance timming, etc. thing is, i doubt you would see much, if any gians in performance in a "boat". even with this motor in a jet skis, the gains you get from modifications are more low end, throttle response, etc. not to mention, these parts are expensive as there is a high demand for them in the stand up jet ski world, where they use the same motor.

    you would probably be better to redo the boat, and fit in a larger motor, and jet pump.
