    Need help with super slow, wet ultra lx

    I'm looking to help my dad out with his 2011 ultra lx. He's not looking to heavily modify his ski but we would like to try and get a little more out of it and try and get that bow out of the water. It's a really wet ride and I'm sure the low hp and heavy front have a lot to do with it. From what I've read so far I was leaning towards a Rideplate and a k&n intake set up. I tried to get info on gains for the grates and wedges for the lx but haven't found too much besides the one sticky thread above. How do you guys get fresh air in the hull without adding salt water to the mix? Thanks ahead!

    The 1' wedge will lift the front a little A ride plate will also help. The r-d air intake gets a lot more air in. A filter is placed under the the front seat in front of the engine bay. U get some other filters for inside as well. Not sure exactly what u get with the non supercharged 1.5 I have a supercharged ultra. I assume they make exhaust for it. Other then that u prolly don't have a lot of options

    It already has a wedge the op said it's an lx!!! Personally wouldn't waste your money on any advertised mods, save for a s/c ski

    Could the trim system thats on the 300 be added? I bet that would help a ton.

    To get the bow out of the water more then it is now, It's HP that you ganna need. The ski is already trimmed ,so trimming it further want change a thing if you don't have the hp to lift it

    Guys thanks for all the input, I appreciate it. If it were me I would get the 300 but my dad isn't going for it. lol. Like you guys said above there isn't much that will change the ride exept for horsepower and thats not easy to come by without big $. I think freeing up the intake couldn't hurt the ski and I'll hold off on the rideplate or wedge unless someone can convince me it'll make a noticable difference. Thanks for the geat info!
