    where to start..

    welp.. the skis going to be paid off soon and then i have the oppertunity to start some mods... im really not looking to go all out with a turbo set up.. but i would like to do some tasteful mods that wont leave the ski "unreliable" at all or "vulnerable" to any damage or break downs..

    so far on my to-do list is..

    4 inch fizzle intake
    catch can
    riva sponons
    free flow exhaust
    and maybe...maybe, a prop

    again im 2 hours into owning a 4-tec so if im headed in the right direction please let me know..

    also do i have to do any sort of tuning or reprogramming to be running those? if not when does reprogramming come into play?

    with all that done can i expect to hit around 71-72 ?

    With just a 4" front air intake as the only hp increasing mod?....not even close. To see those numbers you're gonna need more boost...not a lot...but still. You will also want to pay close attention to all the small details...and the freebies.

    adding an X charger and/or V-tech tune and changing the prop should get you near where you want to be. What RPM and MPH are you getting now?

    67.9 at around 8200 rpm..

    Basically stock with a riva intake.. I'm not really looking to get a specific mph.. Obviously the best bang for my buck will be fine haha..

    Honestly if I break 70 ill be happy...
