    how much money are you willing to throw into your ski. You cant just slap a SC on and ride, there are other things that will have to changed and/or tunned. What are your speed goals? Is a rec ski or a go fast than back on the trailer ski? Do you intend to up keep on maintenance items? Are you handy with a wrench?

    The X charger is a proven setup, but for 80+ you'd probably need an aftermarket ecu. It's possible without one but you have to have everything perfect. Also you can upgrade the wheel and housing on the x charger if you still want more boost. I ran 81 with my x charger and the mini rude upgrade before it blew. Lots of proven setups just depends how deep your pockets are.

    76ish, could probably get closer to 80 if i tweeked my prop some and tuned my AFR (. But doesn't really make a diff since I rarely have clam enough water to do speed runs in. Im happy with the acceleration and speed, tho 78 would make me feel better about the money i spent.

    It didnt necessarily "blow" but the bearing let go and the blade was rubbing up against the housing destroying it. Done with superchargers now. Too much of a headache.

    Youll need to do more than tweeking your prop and AFRs to get 80 from 76...
