    None.
    Your ecu is going to open up whenever it wants regardless.

    3-5 hours for any aftermarket change. Let the engine break in and then do mod's. I have been waiting to I hit the 5 hour mark before I install the Riva Stage 1 Kit...killing me. Now that the ice has broken up, only able to get 2 hours so far. BRP advice...but I work there so how can I ignore that info, otherwise I would have spent the last two months making mods. Water temp was 33 degrees for last nights ride.

    I agree, I would run it good for 2 -3 hours before any power or rpm change.
    But if he has 2 hours the air intake mod is no problem IMO.
    as long as the ski is down on rpm (from ecu not 100%) and not on the limiter he is fine.

    ride it now just like your gonna ride it later just let it COOL more often in the first ten hours and ILO 100% to 110% throttle run ut 85% to 100% on brief but frequent occassions cutting and carving to LOAD the engine and with more cooling periods say every 1 to 2 hours and youll have a WINNER!!.......BABY it around for 10 hours and youll get a WEINER.......especially when u go to modding it later........GOOD LUCK with your ski either way Homey im sure its AWESOME!!!!! BET!!!!!!!!

    I just had the ski out for another 1hr 1/2 and it seems to be getting faster for sure. I ran it pretty hard most of that time and the engine temp never got above 194 on the long hard pulls and I would let it idle and cool off to 188-190 before it ran it again..
    Its got 3hr45min on it now.
