    Thinking of turboing my jet ski at some point..

    I have someone that can do all of the metal work.

    I plan on doing a lot, just don't know specific details at this point..

    My question is, what ECU or EMS would I need for it to run?

    I am very familiar with cars, just not 100% with the seadoo's yet.

    Also, not familiar with what differences there are with something that is a water craft... Like water running through the exhaust? Guessing to cool it?

    Go to the project section and look around. A few guys have done turbos and you can get some ideas.

    Normally you want the exhaust housing as hot as you can have it but in jetskis since the motor is Inclosed in the Hull then the turbo will suck up all of that heat which will result in higher AIT's and causing loss of performance.

    You will be hard pressed to build one of this quality any cheaper on your own.
