Tau Ceti vs Ocean Pro Vortex
As the title reads, lets hear your feedback on the two and the pros and cons and performance difference if any. I currently have OP right now but I think they may be a little restricting. Also I need some replacement bolts for the ones I have now and can't get anyone at Ocean Pro to answer any of my emails and no ones answers the phone for the past year. That's a different story. So what do you think about the difference in the two and if not Tau Ceti, what do you recommend or suggest?

I'm running a pop-off about 32 PSI with 1 inch tau ceti's, on 44mm carbs, so I'm not sure how "free-flowing" they really are.

They are ok for what I use. I need to use them because of the limited space in the STX hull.
If I recall correctly, once I added them I needed to drop a size or two on the jets over not having FA's at all (and also increase the pop-off). That alone suggests that are probably limiting the airflow more than I would have really liked (or expected).
At saying that, the quality of the materials and finish is very good.
I don't think initial throttle response was impacted (not that I noticed anyway).

What size TC would be recommended for my ski the 2.0 or 2.5?

The biggest that you can fit. Try to measure the space as best you can. Mine are on an STX-R and it has limited space. You may have more room?

Yea I think the 2.5 should fit. There is a lot of room in there and the OP F/A are pretty big, maybe even bigger then the TC.
