    my first mods....

    Hello All! This is my first attempt at mods on my '06 RXT and am welcoming and feedback or knowledge you may have to offer. Just want to make sure I'm not doing anything foolish or perhaps out of sequence.... Thinking of starting with the following....

    -X Charger
    - 42# injectors
    - Riva 4" power filter kit
    - 15/20 prop

    At this point, biggest remaining questions are
    1) Do I need to worry about intake grate, OPAS, etc. at this point?
    2) Is exhaust mod give me anything substantial? Thats something that would cost me zero, but what gains will i see?

    Thanks in advance to all for their vast knowledge! You guys rock!

    And I've been looking more n more into waterbox mod and most i see is just "sounds cooler"..... Guess that's not as important to me as "goes cooler"...

    a waterbox will be your best bet.... costly but will be best...deffently a Riva box BUT youll need the opas blockoffs as well to install the waterbox. As far as a grate on a rxt id run a R&D. the riva will be faster but wont hook as well as the R&D .. ive run both

    K. I'll save the waterbox/exhaust mods for next spring..... Let me check out the grates. I'd definitely rather hook-up than see top end. Goin fast in a straight line is only fun for so long, I'd rather jump others wakes n 360 n get air on my own wake!!!!

    I made a custom aluminum exhaust for my 08 rxp a few weeks ago. From stock to modded exhaust I didn't see much difference at all. Very loud though. I definitely recommend going with a thru hull style exhaust.

    I also made a 4in cold air intake and that made a difference. Picked up rpm and 1 mph on the gps. Stock with intake and exhaust im running 69mph gps @ 8150rpm. I believe its time for wear ring and prop for me now to get the rpm up to 8250.

    Good luck!

    Bill
