2005 RXT Recommended Upgrades?
So I have owned my RXT now for about 4 weeks and I am really enjoying it. It's for my family (3 of us) and we mainly like to cruise around and pull my wife and son on tubes and kneeboards. I am pulling my supercharger this weekend to send to Jerry to have it rebuilt since I just turned 100 hours. I was wondering if there are any upgrades out there that I would benefit from to improve our use of the ski? Like an intake, ride plate, impeller etc? The ski is super fast and I don't see us needing more top speed. Maybe something with more hole shot? Not really sure I should do anything to it or just keep it stock. All opinions are welcome.

I put an x charger and 14/19 on my 05 RXT--- hole shot is amazing
I also blocked up the opas paddles and went with the longer 185 steering nozzle.

So...a better air intake will allow you to run not only the corresponding 3blade...prolly one with even a bit more for your needs....Skat would be the make...lesse if I can find the correct one...heh.
Impros suggests this 13/17 for a stock 215 Rxt.
Skat-Trak SD Swirl 159/83/28 3-Blade Impeller
And to answer your fuel efficiency question. The only thing that'll help your mpg...is keeping outa the throttle...heh.

Start with a X charger/42lb inj, R&D grate, 14/18 skat 3 blade for acceleration and good air intake. A very rec friendly set up with a kick to it!

Better air intake definitely helps use less gas.

You have to weigh the mods and who is going to be using the ski. If it's to be driven by wife and kids, you might want to keep it somewhat tame.
After you have the SC rebuilt it will be more bullet proof in that regards. (Metal washers)
