05 rxt sc rebuild, any suggestions for upgrades to sc
have a recently purchased 05 RXT 215, needs sc rebuild, are there any suggestions to increase the performance of the sc during the rebuild, would upgrading to seadoo 255/260 hp sc be a better solution than rebuild with r&d charger wheel? just starting the performance process, need new imp. and ring grate, etc. hoping to keep it reasonably reliable. Thanks

When you have it rebuilt make sure to do a full rebuild with washers and bearings. Too many people only do the washers and end up having a bearing failure. Bearing failure can cost 2k+
Jerry on this site does a great job on the s/c rebuilds.
Also read the sticky on valve failure and i think the 04-06 models had issues with the flywheel bolts.
I wouldn't do any increases in hp till you did the valves and flywheel bolts.

If you want to upgrade don't waste money on your charger upgrade to a x charger and 42# injectors!!
Its a simple effective mod!!

A x charger is bigger than your current charger. U cant rebuild your charger and make it a x charger without machining it ect....
Supertech valves and springs. Arp head bolts and arp flywheel bolts. Then after that you can push the rpms higher with a ecu reflashed higher rpm limiter.
I would highly recommend the x charger or bigger!

You can also get the ET 127 drop in replacement for about 350.00,rebuild kit for 300.00 and a set of 42 lbs injectors for 200.00...a brand new X charger is 950.00 and 42s 200.00....

Depends on how fast you want to go and how much you have in the budget.
