    Shop with my money ! Performance advice needed !

    So heres the deal here, I have a 2005 GTX 185, bought it in non-running condition, as a project, mostly to learn about these things, and pass some time. The motor was send out and bored out (not sure of the specs) so bigger pistons and what not were added. Now i read alot about more "bolt on mods" here . Im looking to the memebers here to help me decide what to buy for the following
    -Intake Grate
    -prop
    -exhaust/waterbox
    -injectors
    -ECU Upgrade

    Id like to avoid an supercharger swap/upgrade if possible, not looking for an 80+ ski.

    So what im asking for is recommended parts- and rough costs if possible. Below is a picture of its current status

    Id run an XCharger and the newer fly wheel (or at minimum the charger and fly wheel from a 215)

    Crap... That picture makes me cry. Research the mods it would take to build a rxt with external intercooler. Will require flywheel new 215 sc internals driveshaft prop wear ring fpr, ecu plus the bolt ons... Wedge, grate 4"air etc. Should be over 70mph.

    In the future I will change the SC , but for now, the stock one has been rebuilt and im just wondering what the best add ons would be to get the most out of the current SC/Engine. And the picture makes me cry to, but i have a photoshop of what its going to look like complete, and it puts a smile on my face! once i learn a bit more, i will start a build thread in the projects forum

    As soon as the motor is in pieces you must use the pistons of 215.Then an ecu,flywheel,prop,driveshaft,fuel pressure regulator,etc.
    Then you will have a 215 ski!

    The motor WAS in pieces, but its back together now and ready to go back in the ski. Right now I basically have a stock GTX back to 185 hp but it has been bored out.

    Should have used a 215 flywheel while you had the engine out.
