Rebuilt x-charger = hammer on it tomorrow
About to reinstall my freshly rebuilt x-charger (by Jerry) with the "best" washers, Viton seal and set at 15lbs slip. Hauling this bitch out to the cold CO river tomorrow morning.
Cold, flat azz water, air temps should be at least in the 50s and some downstream current just south of the Hoover Dam should yield me some VERY high 70s-80ish mph....hopefully my driveshaft bellow doesnt wimp out too badly tomorrow

Went to the river and it pulled off a "disappointing" best of 78.9...winds were somewhat gusty, so the water was just a little less than perfect. Got all my RPMs back with the charger rebuild, so thats great.
Besides the tired charger, i knew I had a driveshaft bellow getting weak on me....left the river, picked up my O-rings from the dealer to slide into the grooves of the bellow. Found the clamps around the bellow to be slightly loose and also my floating ring was a little frozen/jammed on the shaft/C-clip. Was never that bound up before. Reinstalled everything along with a new c-clip and rode it on the lake (instead of the river). Winds there were even more gusty and had almost shitty water. Now, with the tweaked bellow boot, I got all my torque/thrust back....so now it totally feels like normal again. But with the less than ideal water, I was only able to grab 77.3. Not too bad considering the water and gusty wind pushing me everywhere. Gonna try and get out again this week and grab 79.X

What im stalling on is the new plug and play monitoring device to be finished from the Dyno Research guys. However, at the moment my plugs do seem to burn nicely. I change them roughly every 15-20hrs and they always come out looking as they are on point. Not black and rich, and not burnt white to a crisp as though lean. They appear "middle of the road" as much as i can tell.

What nozzle do you have? WIth my 15/20 on 83mm ring i was on the limiter at 80MPH. Same grate, same plate. If your close to limiter you should repitch.
