    2mph slower Aquavane intake why?

    Needless to say I snatched it off and put stock one back on it! 2mph faster with stock one. Doesn't appear damaged or bent came UPS yesterday excited and ran it and Yikes wonder if I can get my $160 back??

    your GPS must be off. just look at the design of the plates on both, its physically impossible for it to create more drag.

    After your install was the grate flush with the rideplate and bottom of ski? If it wasnt flush it would create drag and slow you down.

    Maybe 1/32 off

    Water conditions? It's not faster on flat water, but it should not slow you down-

    Did you run them back to back? Same conditions, fuel levels, temperature, etc?

    Seems odd
