    Probably not enough gain to be worth the money spent.

    If you REALLY want some gains, reflash the ECU and upgrade the turbo

    Not all MSX have Weber engines, so the ECU reflash does not always apply

    The 2-stroke MSX 140 is common enough, plus a handful of Matrix conversions and even some 4-Tec conversions in MSX hulls.

    Ride plates are not terribly expensive to purchase or install. What testing I have read almost always seems to favor the '04 MSX ride plate over the '03.

    I *believe* Polaris is completely out of stock on the MSX rideplates and probably won't be making any more.

    I think Harry from WSM was thinking of casting some up at one time, but I don't know what became of it?

    Bob,
    If you can find one, you may see 1 mph. It helps lift the bow a little with it's extra 4mm kick in the rear over the '03 version.
