    Ok, fill your ride plate holes ($5), pull your OPAS off and get blockoffs (($50), dump the OEM impeller and get a soals 14/19r ($200+-). True your dirvshaft to the pump shoe ($5). That should get you a concervatively speaking 3-4 mph right there.......

    Markus, Fill the ride plate holes ,make your own 3 or 4 inch air intake system, install a 14/19 prop, remove the prop nose cone, and install a Riva intake grate.... and may want sum of Jerry's skegs aswell ya should pick up pretty decent. Thats about the cheapest way to walk by a stock RXP.... Maybe $500 US dollars for about 3+mph way better holeshot & midrange aswell.

    Jerry i would like to pick up a few mph. At this stage with a stock 06 I'am getting -+ 70.2 mph (113 km).Yes the more $$$$ bucks you have the faster and beter you can go.

    I want to start of with a small budget but want to spend it on the right stuff.

    There is one thing i keep on missing when you are speeking about the prop nose cone to remove it.The nose cone i know opens up the rear of the impeller shaft and water can get in there,bearings can been seen from there.Please help with this issue.

    In short I need to stay infront of the rest (rxp)

    All the small mods have been done like filling the ride plate holes.

    thanks for all the input

    Markus

    when we say the prop cone... that's the little cone on the front of the impeller that slides onto the driveshaft... if u have a stock prop it's black rubber cone. if you have a SOLAS prop it's the green metal cone.. remove that.

    the cone you talk about that has the grease and bearings is the PUMP cone, whereas the other is the IMPELLER nose cone

    Some people just said fu-k it, and put the black rubber stock cone back on bacause the green Solas cone needs a little sanding or wearing down the paint in the grooves of the thread.
