    you can go 80 far less

    R3
    Jim's mod stock plate
    fizzle intercooler
    rrpr
    et low boost wheel
    14/24 prop
    84mm exit nozzle

    Joey is trying to point you in the right direction. But the 2013 FX's do require a bit more boost & mods to break into the 80's. First mod is an R&D grate w ppk asap. Then a couple of small things are a "Leo's wedge" to go along with "Jim's modded oem plate" those 2 mods alone really wake the ski up for handling (plus 2-3 mph) & are a good foundation to start throwing boost at.

    You will also need to open up your steering nozzle to approx 92mm with a flapper wheel, as you already have an oem 87mm exit nozzle. It is (90 x 86mm) stock, so the end result may be oval(ish) as well. Or you can just order up a R&D nozzle from the store -

    If you want the "original recipe" for an 80's FX, feel free to shoot me a PM..

    Don't forget the RIBBON DELETE!

    I recently built (2) 2009 FX SHO's that were not far from 80 (76.5 GPS) with R3, R&D Grate, ribbon delete, B1 Wheel, SVHO Intercooler, Solas 13/22, Jim's SHO Plate and a few other goodies. With that being said, a larger intercooler (such as Riva 18005 or Fizzle), a C3 wheel and some nozzle work, you should be on the verge of 80.

    I know it's a newbie question but how much different is the svho cooler

    its a little bit bigger than stock, you won't get 80 with it in the Australian heat

    Hit up watson racing on the goldy, ribbon insert, stage 4 flash, 18psi wheel, 1000cc injectors ,cooling kit and something like a type 13 intercooler with a 14/25 solas prop should see you at 80mph providing you have intake grate and ride plate setup right.
    FZSAUST and another mate both have this setup plus/minus other parts both running over 80mph on full tanks in stinkin hot air both fz hulls, an fx shouldnt be far off. They are still very reliable, like anything dont run it to its limit youll be right.

    $6k is a bit excessive imo buy the parts and do it yourself this forum has more than enough info to get you through and if not theres usually a reply within a few hours.

    In the sent PM, I forgot to mention one important detail - A "Coco" tunnel reinforcement. It's becomes a must have once you start thinking about the 80's.

    Good luck with your build!
