    Define 'too slow'. How 'slow' is it right now?

    What performance are you looking for?

    I can probably hit about 50 mph tops... Just looking for some torque and take off power. I also have a seadoo gtx supercharged and it's no where near as quick as that.

    Not looking to make it that quick but just ass a lil more power to it.

    What engine RPM are you seeing at top speed?

    Is this Genesis fuel injected or carburetor?

    What condition is the jet pump and impeller in? Worn impeller blades with excessive clearance to the wear ring will reduce thrust.

    i haven't paid close attention to the rpm but ill check it tomorrow.

    its fuel injected.

    I haven't checked the impeller or the wear ring yet. I'll be doing that this weekend.

    Check clearance between impeller blades and surrounding wear ring. Maximum allowed is .020" but optimal is more like .010" or less.

    If the engine does not respond smoothly and in a linear and consistent manner to the throttle then it is possible the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) is failing. This could affect max power if the EMM is getting an incorrect signal from the TPS.

    What model year is this Genesis?

    A well running fuel injected engine should be around 6700-6900 RPM sustained at wide open throttle, give or take.

    its the 2000 polaris genesis 1200 cc 4 seater. fuel injected.

    I actually just replaced the tps sensor, and didn't really notice any difference in power. It gave up on me in the middle of the lake.
