    Freebe performance thread?

    I tried to search for it but came up empty handed, is there a thread that contains all the "free" mods you can do to a seadoo? I wanted to do what I can on the cheap while the supercharger is out of it and I have some downtime. Any help is appreciated.

    Oh, Its a 2008 RXT-X with 150 hours and has apparently had no maintenance done on it to date. taking care of the maintenance part now and will take as much of the salt build up off as I can (cleaning the IC and rinsing the inside of the hull).

    Has the pump tunnel been re-inforced?
    Free mods.
    Remove the FA from the intake manifold
    Fill the ride plate holes
    Cut the outer wings off the stock intake grate

    ill probably reinforce the hull this weekend, is it really required if I'm not adding a lot of power over stock? I did a quick search, came up with nothing as far as what FA removal is... what is that? Would an aftermarket ride plate be better than cutting the stock one down, and do you have a picture of a "cut" ride plate?

    On a 08 TX, the pump tunnel re-inforcement is a must do, trust me, I had one.
    FA. Flame arrestor. There is a wire/mesh filter inside the intake manifold. Think of it as a small sponge. It soaks up some boost.
    IMO, leave your stock ride plate alone. After market ones are good, but they aint free.

    Intake grate....not ride plate.

    R&D makes the grate for you. When you do that...in addition to a 4" front air intake...you should be able to up the prop or at least tweek the oem for a coupla mph.

    Oem grate on the '08 x's were the biggest drag.

    Most of the "freebee" mods are in the how to section.
