    Last I read, he was in the 72 range, but said the pump was holding it back a little.

    im running 73 at the moment, and its still a stock 185hp 4tec
    my alluminum intercooler comes in this week and ill be ordering my rr ecu in about a month or so. and i definatly need more pump.
    the acceleration is arm stretching, but the top isn't that impessive yet.
    (well i guess it is for a xpl but not compared to some of these monster 80+ skis)
    my goal is still 80mph

    heres a few vids from the first test day. it shows the acceleration and mid range better in these vids. as i tear up a stock RXP
    stock 185 xpl vs. stock 215 rxp
    same weight and skill riders
