RXT Impeller Pitch
Purchased a stock 2006 Seadoo RXT and have installed a RIVA S3 supercharger, 42 lb injectors, and a 4" kanaflex intake. Right now the seadoo has the stock prop, just wondering what I should expect the top speed to be as it is (won't be able to take it out for a few weeks), and what would the best impeller pitch to upgrade to? With the setup and a new impeller is 70 mph possible?

15/20 on prop pitch for stock rpm's. not sure about speed

Right now with an oem prop....you'll be at 67-68 or so...but all over the limiter.
For starters...with an oem IC you don't need 42's...stock is just fine. 4" in front is a help....but to really make it breath you need to go rear air. A 14/19 is gonna be my bet...considering you haven't listed any other mods...ie...freebs...hull...handling...exhaust. With a 14/19, 4" front air, S3SC on an other wise stock ski. You'll crack 70.
I'm running...god it's been a while since I've done this...
filled holes, flushed Riva grate, 2* wedge, skegs, 5" rear air, rad4 torq plate, free-flo exhaust, 160* thermo, block-ups, S3SC, 14/19+2
Before the torq plate I was getting 72.7 @ 8050 since then my sc is slippin a bit so no new numbers till this summer.
With the 42's you'll be rich...and if you put on a 15/20...it'll dog you....my bet....4-500rpm.
Ask me how I know...heh.

Thanks for the advise guys. Leaning toward a 14/19, Everything else it stock, probably going to fill the ride plate holes. Do you think it will run to lean with an aftermarket intercooler?

nope....you should be right on the money...(w/ 42's and an exic).....course...you add an exic...you might then wanna look at a 15/20 as well as a rrfr.

Had my first run on the ski today, tons of power. Definitely needs a different pitch, when hitting the throttle from a stop, it would immediately jump to 8300 rpm and hold it there. I didn't want my egts to be too high so i kept the Rpms down to 8150 by only giving it about 3/4 throttle. At 3/4 throttle and 8150 rpm I GPS'd a speed of 66.5 mph. Water temp was about 50 degrees and air was about 55. I'm thinking about going with the 14/19, but water temp will never really get above 65 where I use it so I'm not sure if I'll have the power to spin the 15/20, any opinions?

IMO, I would get a 14/19 and a wedge at this point to add to the mods that you currently have. That should take you to about 68 mph. to take the T to 70 mph you'll have to go to the ext. intercooler and add 42's. the ext intercooler and 42's will really wake the S3 up. The wedge and 14/19 should put you right at the 8100 mark. When you add the intercooler and 42's you'll have to repitch the 14/19 to +1 or 2. If I had it to do again, I would go with the x charger and 42's and saved myself some money. My brother-in-law also has an 07 T that we went x charger and 42's without an ext cooler and we have the same top end. I can out pull him mid-range by about a ski. But if he was to add a cooler he would smoke me. IMO both setup's are bullet proof, but the x charger setup is cheaper for the same speed.
