    Nice looking ski. Welcome to the forum. The first thing you probably should do is to read the thread posted in the sticky's section about early year valve failures. It is probably not the most encouraging mod but none the less an important one. The valves in the head of this year engine are know to fail without warning. The only precaution is to change them before they fail. That year is also know to shear flywheel bolt off. These are definitely not performance mods so to speak, but they are things to consider if you do plan on modding further. These are the most important first mods for you to maintain a long lasting reliable "bad ass fast as hell" jet ski. That being said this forum is a endless supply of great modding info. The people here a great and really knowledgeable. Start digging though the posts from end to beginning, and you'll find all that you need. Post up as you have questions and most will chime in. If the ski was cheap enough...and you don't want to dump money as previously mentioned...that okay too....but, as most will agree, it is cheaper to fix now then after it blows...BOOM!(As another member would say!)

    Honestly, the grate does help with hookup in rough water. the rest not worth it at this point. Dump your 215 charger for and x-charger and some 42lb injectors. that will really wake it up. Then pick a prop to go with it. Probably a 14/19r to start. Night and day difference after those beginner mods. You'll love it! Totally safe as well...

    Do the valves and the fly wheel bolts first. If you add power to that ski without doing those upgrades then either the valves or the flywheel bolts will break.
    Spend your $$$ on those 1st. Then $$$ for performance upgrades.

    x charger, Bosch 42's, 14/19 solas, external intercooler-- Fizzle HE, impeller tool, new oem wear ring, dyi 160 thermostat mod, 1 gallon of antifreeze, change oil. Small adjustment to impeller to bring the RPM down to 8100-8150. You can still use the oem air intake that will keep your AFRs in line, so you don't need a RRFPR and stay on budget.
