port out 83mm or just buy an 87mm?
as the title states..
I want hole shot, not top end..
I know the 83 is "longer" vs the 87
with it being longer would it have the same efficiency just have more thrust?

The stock OEM 87mm venturi from a 2010 RXT-X is by far the best for hole shot and acceleration for our 2010-2011 TX's. Just order one and set the impeller to 12.5/19, you will be very pleased.

I guess my question is since the 83mm is "longer and less of an angle going out to the nozzle" would porting the 83 to 87mm be more beneficial than running a 2010 87mm which is shorter thus putting more pressure on the prop ..
seeing that there would be more "area" for water I'm thinking steeper prop, (riva and SEVERAL racers agree that i spoke with at the Drags) 15/22 would be exactly what I'm looking for with the mods I'm planning the only question is which way to get to 87mm would be better?
has anyone ported out the 83 to 87?
.. besides the 87mm, 15/22, ill be doing the intake mod.. and keeping the 8375 limit.. i should still be around 8200 ish rpms in the summer which is all i want. IF by some weird reason I'm still bumping the limiter.. ill put a Lucky 13 cone in that should drop me the desired RPMS..

I have a few extra nozzles I can bore to 85 and 87 you can try. As long as the early nozzles are the same as iBr.
