    Drop in charger wheel?

    Hi I have a 03 GTX with riva stage one.
    I'm think of going for a bigger charger but don't like the idea of swapping fly wheels to a 215 hp one, is there a drop in charger wheel available for the 185hp skis? and would i need any more mods to run one, injectors, ecu, rrfpr ect? If any one has done this and can shed some light on the subject for me that would be great. Thanks Ben

    If it was me I would get a 215 flywheel, 215 ecu, x charger, 42lb injectors, external inter cooler, and prop. That would get you to about 255hp.

    Do some searching on the cast pistons in the 185hp skis. Some say they wont last long at higher boost levels. Other have done it without problems.

    Belive it or not it would be cheaper to trade your 185 ski in on a 255. Even with used parts it's still very expensive to mod these skis.


    a green wheel will fit also and uses stock injectors and no tuning.

    he said he didnt want to change the flywheel ...... the green wheel and the et 127 are different.. yes both same but the et 127 will out perform that wheel hands down. green wheel you will see 9lbs-10 et 127 will be 11lbs. the difference in boost wont be that harder on the engine. I might add yes the et 127 only requires 42 injectors and no tuning is required as well.

    Those boost number a bit high with a 185 flywheel?

    What I meant was they would actually make a little less boost on a 185 flywheel vs a 215 flywheel.
