    Athena ECU gets my FX SHO to [email protected]!

    A big thanks to Jorge at JV Performance down here in Miami, FL for installing the Athena ECU, pitching my prop to get my rpms right to where Riva recommends (8300rpm), and tuning the AFR just perfect to get the ski where it is!

    The speed runs were done in a canal that is both salt and fresh water mix. The temperature outside was 82 with very high humidity and the ski still managed to generate 16+psi of boost with my E1 wheel at 8300rpm. There were a few other boats running in the area, but even with a slight chop we were able to get 84.8mph multiple times ON A FULL TANK! The AFR at WOT was 11.9-12.2.

    These are the modifications I have done to my ski and the results I gained in order:

    1. Installed full Riva Stage 2 with additional Riva Powercooler with Solas DF 13/22r impeller pitched to 15/26 - 77.2 mph (on the limiter)
    2. Swapped the 13/22r impeller for Solas 15/22 pitched to 15/26 and swapped FF exhaust for rear exhaust - 79.2 mph
    3. Installed Leo's pump wedge - 80.4 mph (seat on) 81.1 mph (seat off)
    4. Removed Foam inserts and vented the hull - 82.0 [email protected] (with seats on and off)- and boost went from 12 psi to 14 psi after venting the hull.
    5. Installed Athena ECU, ran additional cooling lines to intercooler and engine, changed fuel pump to Walbro 255, and pitched Solas 15/22 prop to 15/23.5 - [email protected]@16+psi

    I wouldn't doubt it in perfect conditions....I'm cool where I am though even though I know there is a bit more speed left on the table. I wanted to put the ski in the rpm range that Riva recommended. My goals were 16psi boost, 85mph, and 8200-8300rpm...Jorge did an awesome job at making it happen.

    Nice job and awesome numbers. Great write up on your mods. That makes an interesting thread like the old GH reading used to be instead of the usual BS.
