    Performance parts for a 2012 GTI 130

    Hey everyone, just trying to see where I can find an upgraded intake grate for my 2012 GTI 130. I've found a Solas prop and intake filter.

    Is the intake filter even worth getting? I mean, will I even notice 3-5HP?
    And how much performance gain can I REALLY expect from upgrading to a Solas prop and upgrading the intake grate? Also, I've read that exhaust for a non turbo or supercharged motor basically yields 0 gains. Is this true? If not, where can I find one?

    And guys, I know this is the grocery-getter of the PWC world. I know it will never do 65+MPH. I'm just looking for a little extra push out of it.

    Bump.
    I'm also gonna epoxy and sand the holes on the ride plate. Would sanding the whole plate smooth help any? It's pretty rough, like a really high grit sand paper.

    shoud be about 7300
    155 is higher 7600+
    you can reflash the ecu for more rpms
    the motor can spin over 8000 with out any problems

    Ah ok. is it a direct swap? Also, what do you think about upgrading to a SOLAS impeller? And do you know of anywhere that has intake grates for a 2012 GTI 130? I can't seem to find one for such a new model.
    And what do you think about sanding the ride plate smooth? It's rough like a high grit sandpaper right now. I was gonna fill the holes and sand the whole thing smooth.

    So, don't worry about a new prop? I did find a Solas prop for like $320 I think it was? Is it not worth it or I just won't feel anything from it?

    So from what I gather, I should just upgrade the intake grate, fill ride plate holes and sand the ride plate and holes smooth. And get a 155 ECU if I can find one.
    Now I just have to FIND a 2012 intake grate. Will any previous years fit it?
