    2013 fzs
    -riva intake
    -ff exhaust
    -r2 reflash
    -stock plate currently (should have vx plate in a week)
    -riva gen 1 intercooler
    -ribbon delete
    -intake grate
    -stock prop

    Current speed 73.8mph at 8440rpms

    Any help is appreciated!

    Thanks

    I think at the point you are now, you should save your money and stick with the stock one for now, especially if you plan on doing more to the ski. Otherwise, you'll need to repitch it every time you do another mod. Open up your exit nozzle to 84mm and the steering nozzle to 90 or 91mm. That will get you a little more RPM and speed, and it's almost free to do.

    Sounds like a good idea

    If you go with a C3, B1, or ET wheel, then a 13/21 or 13/22 would be a good prop.

    I have an ET low boost wheel. Plan to do an R3, Riva Gen2 IC & FPR. Not to thread high jack (sorry) I have a new in box Skat 13/21R impeller I was going to run. I was told that impeller wouldn't be a good choice. Should I exchange it? Looking to spin 8400-8450. Water temps here in the summer range mid 70's. Thanks for any advice.

    13/23 or 14/24 with a 85mm exit nozzle.....I run ET wheel I have a 13/23 now but in winter is all over limiter with 85mm nozzle and in summer runs 8500 so I plan on going up to 14/24 to be off limiter in winter months and be 100 less rpms in summer months




    13/22.5 or 13/23 would be a nice choice for you with stock 83mm nozzle being in the cooler conditions with lower humidity

    I was thinking 13/23 but I am not sure how many more rev's the type R impeller puts out over the standard large hub skat. A 14/23 pitch sounds like the way togo. Reduce chance of Cav. I won't be boring the nozzle, so stock bores.

    Unfortunately humidity here in the summer is usually quite high. This summer we had 15 days at 90 degrees and above. Not counting the high 80 degree days. One day in the low 100's. Upstate weather isn't what it use to be... *sigh*

    Yea I run the Skat 13/23 right now with the 85mm nozzle and it runs 8600+ right now and in summer months was 8450-8550 the 83mm would give me 8500 in winter months but on a hot humid day would have me back to 8350 rpms. that is with a skat 13/23 on a ET LB wheel and Riva gen 1 cooler.......hope that helps ya I run a R&D ant cav cone also
