mac-man, you stepping it up to rumble with the boys @skifari this year!!
I did similar mods to you on my old rxt (see my sig at bottom) except no opas bo, no wedge, and a solas 13/18r best speed was 73mph.
The x charger was a great mod but reflashing the ecu really woke the ski up!!!!!!!!
Good luck with the build, i might see it @ skifari!

looks like c kit makes about 4-5psi more boost than a x charger - which i intend to have for a little while at least before going et
might see if I can get jerry to change my order if its not shipped yet...
Reflash will have a ~8600 limit when it happens (might not be for another year yet)

Last night i removed the stock air intake (all except the box on the fuel tank)
Removed everything needed to get the charger out
But didn't have a 1/4 spanner to remove the rear bolt on the charger (only 6 and 7mm, 6 too small - 7 too big)
Fizzle catch can is installed but its not a real good fit in 3 seater - had to be backwards and even then the valve at the bottom only just clears the fuse box.

Pulled the stock charger last night, has gold metal washers (as expected on an 0
So i put it back together for now - few parts i ordered from GH are back ordered and would like to ride in a week or two.
Also gives me a chance to test what the fizzle alone does to top speed.

Nice build I'm excited to see the outcome. And in order to reflash the ecu you need the retainers and all that right?
