    Are there any tuning options that are sensibly priced?

    I know I'm new to the PWC world, but what the hell is with the cost of tuning for these things? I've tuned many cars and trucks, and have never paid more than $300-$400. My tuner sells me GM Car and Truck tunes for a little over $200 and I load them on local cars and make a couple extra bucks. Am I missing something or are all of these vendors out of their minds?

    This has been asked many times. Use the search and you will find many like yourself asking the same question. Essentially it comes down to customer base for the product. A lot goes into researching and testing of these products and tunes, and their is a very small market for these products.

    A seadoo is not a car, and a car does not make close to 100hp per hole. A little different if you ask me.

    The Vtech tuner is a great option for the price

    If you think its to expensive dont buy the products and parts. People have spent hours and hours to get performance parts ready that we take for granted, so that when we get them they do not destroy our 20 thousand dollar machines. If you are a enthusiast like most of us are on this forum you wouldnt care the price tag. The reason we buy these "expensive" (as you put it) parts is to enjoy wrenching and spending countless hours working on the ski. So when you do take it out onto the lake you get that great feeling of accomplishment when you run your target speed.

    IMO these parts are reasonably priced for the demand of the market.
