To go X or not to go X
according to the mods in my sig my setup is running real well at 75-76.5 mph in the summer heat. i have Arts ......LAST ET 127..... with 3mm spacer wheel in my charger with a brand new 08 shaft kit. my setup now is fast plain and simple.
my minds been going round and round. I know its worth going to a x charger from what ive read but how much more gain and top speed should i see by the time i add the afr setup , rrfpr and new x charger itself? then dialing it all in. Is it truly worth the extra $1000+ i will have to throw into the ski to run an X or should i be content with my numbers now knowing come fall and cooler canadian air ill hit 77ish maybe 78 if im lucky. Just my thoughts.. please any advice is welcome.......

Off topic, but your mods look similar to mine. What is your prop pitch? Because my ski is all over the rev limiter.

You will see a gain. But, imo if your going to upgrade. Go with a big charger. (rude 2-et137 ect...)
The reason the x charger is Great up grade is the price point...its only 300 more than having your 215hp sc rebuilt.then you can still sell your stock sc for 150....very little out of pocket...plus its runs great with just 42s on stock ic...
The reason I say go bigger than an x is, as soon as you go external ic and x you need a rrfpr and a wideband..so if your going to spend the money on a rrfpr and a wideband.you might as well spend a little more and get a big charger....you already have the components needed to run a big charger...

If I'm not mistaken, the wheel and spacer make boost numbers close to that of the x. If you're going to jump, find something above the x, or buy the x and upgrade the wheel. "How fast do you want to spend?" as my dad so eloquently states. hahaha Good luck!

true but big chargers are hard to dial in.... h2jim has et 137 and he's fighting with it now to dial it in... using rrfpr and begi setup

i say you stick with what you have if your worried about dialing stuff in....
