    With 6 bones I would do the following:

    Grate
    Plate
    Jetworks
    Race filter
    Pre-mix

    and you will have just a little bit of money left over, especially if you find the filter, grate, and plate used.

    Man, I'm an idiot some times. The absolute must do's on the 03's are the tunnel reinforcement and grate. After that you may be able to do the ride plate depending onif you buy it new or used. That spends your $600.00 REAL fast.

    And just call me paranoid, but I would add the wave eaterclips. You really don't hear of PV pins dropping on the 03 and 04s, but $60.00 is the best piece of mind you can have.
    Do the pump plug kit too. You can probably find a good used prop for very little money as well.

    I forgot the PPK too.

    I wouldnt worry about the prop until you have a little more money to do some engine mods. I dont have any experience with the EFI skis YET, but I have been told it is pretty hard to turn any kind of aftermarket prop without compression, timing, etc.

    I'm like you Jeff, still learning. The EFI does look to be fun to play with.

    I perfer the 1200/1300 grate but it is really just personal preferance. The 1200/1300 is a better all around grate. The 800 will net you a better speed but does cavitate a lot more on the bottom end.

    -reinforce tunnel
    -Pump Plug kit
    -Intake grate (a must)
    -ride plate
    -true your hull (it free, do a search on this forum)
    -PV Clips

    you should be able to do all this for under $600 if you shop around for a used plate... I would recomend buying a new grate!

    Also depending on the water you run you may want to get the plate modded but that will burn up almost all your $$$ (wait on it until the off season so you can save up some more money)


    I think some one need to do a "budget" ski and spend no more that X amount of dollars (maybe 1K) and see how fast they can go!
