    Motec m130 - Seadoo 260- overkill.?

    Hey all , for the first time in a while , I m doing some mod homework rather than keeping buying goodies and upgrading .. And upgrading and upgrading ..lol

    forgetting the $$ (just for a minute)on the motec .... Would I see many gains in stock format on a px260 ,

    I don't plan on major boost mods - eventual set up would be 8650 ish rpm , retainers, 4 inch air , upgraded intercooler and pipes, intake manifold filter removal , upgraded thermo (closed loop) standard xhaust, prop, fuel regulator , injectors (depending on ecu and afr's)

    I guess I'm trying to keep standard charger combo for now - less maintenance

    is the motec overkill for the above set up..
    Would I see substantial gains with the motec in the above set up over the equivalent vtech, or riva /Athena
    Tunes

    I guess the obvious question also... I'm not an expert on mapping my own ecu's , I have nt done my own tunes b4, Is there pre configured maps available?


    Thanks

    In my option you can not go wrong with the M130. Nils has very good base tunes and he is very helpful with helping you getting it dialed in for your ski. The logging is out of this world and you know you have the right ECU even if you want to do more mods to your ski. I know there is one member on here running right at 80 with the stock charger, M130 and a few other mods.

    no doubt the motec is the best option
    but with your light mods the vtec and injectors is all you really need
    yes vtec has many tunes for your ski
    are they perfect, probably not but you can get them there if you want
    vtec can do every thing that is needed to get the most out of your sled
    I bet the motec may not even get you 1 mph more than a good vtec tune
    also I bet that stock charger 80 mph ski is running much higher than stock rpms
    now if you said you were going turbo then I would not recommend vtec

    Overkill? Nope, and you won't stop at 8650ish as 8800 seems to be the sweet spot. I had the best company V tune and it was crap compared to the M130. I went from 80 something to 83 with just the ECU change.

    Do you want THE best system available, the best tune software and logging available, the best customer support? Look no further.

    The stock charger 80mph ski which was mine was revving 8700 rpm with super tech valve train upgrades. Also there was a ride plate on it as well which brought big speed and rpm increases.

    If you decide to go with vtech you must get everything they offer to dial your ski in. You need the handheld. The tuning credit. The injectors. The logger. Add all that up and compare the difference in price for a Motec . It's not a giant price difference when you look at it that way. And the support is almost immediate. Regardless of the charger you choose in the future the tune is set up for it. You will basically have a plug and play ecu that will net probably 5mph if not more.

    Another member ran a stock Px with stock valve train with only a gutted water box and home made air intake up to 77-78 under 8400 rpm.

    I have customers that have got better speed with our tune then with motec.

    But yes to get it perfect u need the data logging since skis differ in stock fuel pressure and so on.

    All depends what tuning level you want .

    From my experience , the stock ecu(Bosch) knock control is better then most stand Alone ecus .

    That's a pretty bold statement there. I'll bite ! Prove it pal!
