    ET 15.5 vs E1

    I'm not trying to start a pissing match here, I'd just like a little info between these two wheels.

    The ski is currently stock(except Tommy exhaust, Autozone CAI, and R&D grate), but I'm tentatively planning on a R3, some sort of intercooler upgrade(have TIG welder may play with it), a blow off valve(of course), and obviously a prop repitch.

    My riding is on the Mississippi river, which has a few areas that are actually smooth, but generally pretty choppy.

    As far as goals... I wanna go fast... Currently the fastest ski I've seen on the river is a SD that does around mid 70's.. I'm shooting for having enough HP to hit 80+...

    Both wheels are good. ET is made of Billet , E1 is Alloy.

    We have seen an Et wheel make 17 - 18psi , where a E1 15psi at around 8600rpm.

    I'd go with the billet ET wheel.

    With billet vs alloy, is one better suited to salty sea air in regards to corrosion?

    Also in the description for the ET high boost it says aftermartet ecu is required, will a R3 or R8 do?

    Both are fine in salty , which not much if any will go in anyways.

    R2 , R3 will be fine. Maybe Hitman or Jerry will confirm.

    I don't believe the R2 will give you the fuel you'll need at WOT unless you add a powershot (it didn't for me w/ the ET LB wheel). I'd look at the R3, and monitor those AFRs closely.
