    Congrats.
    If that is the same ski that was in the back of your truck @ mudbugs, then get a trailer for it.

    I know thats right. I had 2 GPRs and a standup on a double one time, what a pain in the a$$.

    Are you going to mod this ski or what? I knew a guy a while back who had one and it was guick! It would get to 50 in a heartbeat. Not sure what all he had in it, but the ski screamed. Must have weighed about 350 lbs, felt like it anyway.

    For as many of those skis are out there, I would think you could find some new left over parts, cheap too.
    Hell, you might even be able to trade for some brisket.

    f/a, xo prop, 85/88 nozzles or get a rfi pump with some nozzles. should put you in the high 58-60 mph range and keep the reliability.

    flame arrestors. they allow more air to the intake and as a result you will have to re-jet the carbs.
