    Welcome riding season!!!

    Out for the first ride of the year today (well was out for 3 mins last week before I had a charge hose blow off ). Freezing cold wind, choppy water but fantastic sunshine. Huge, huge smile on my face made all those cold, dark nights working with the head in the hull worth it.

    So for all you guys out there still working on your ski's and wondering why we do it, I can assure you it'll all come flooding back the first time you squeeze that tiny little lever

    Keep wrenching!!!!!

    Couldn't get over 4k and boost was about 5 bars on display. Engine check light blinked too. I thought it was poor oil level limiting the revs. Checked and topped up oil and ran again. Then I could only get 1 or 2 bars showing on boost display and around 2/3k rpm. Max speed through all this was 45kmh. It was the hose from the SC to IC which came off the SC end. I had swapped all the 3" clamps to T clamps, the output from the SC has two ribs on and the new T clamp was too wide to fit between. Therefore it just slid off under boost. Replaced with new narrow clamp and saw full boost today. Max RPM showed as 8474 (peak I guess) and 63mph. It was choppy and windy so data not so reliable.
