haha big spender huh J/K -
From what Ive heard:
Reverse gate (bucket) shave
Fill ride plate holes
Also heard you can rig up the OPAS flaps so they arent touching the water and creating drag
Havent done any of these myself. Just something for you to look into.

If your looking for one percenters make sure your maintenance is up to scratch. Spark plugs, wear ring...... etc, I realise there not free. A worn wear ring is the biggest hole shot robber around town.
Was amazing the difference in my ski the first time I did some general maintenance.

If you can part with about 30cents more, I found an easier (less dexterity required anyway) method to plug the ride plate holes. Put a dab of black silicone on a nickel, push it against the bolt head and let it set up. Then just fill in the rest with plumbers putty.
Trim the reverse bucket
Make certain your intake grate is flush
Check the butterfly in the throttle body. Make sure that at WOT it is all the way open but not past 90* to airflow.
Shave your head (I havent tried this one yet)
Good luck and ride safe!
