    need help, advice, anything you can offer

    first off i have a 2006 gtx nonsupercharged 155hp model ski.

    i recently had some rock damage to my stock prop so i changed it to a solas 12/20 prop. (not sure if thats good for my application) right now im running with no nose cone waiting for the right one to come in. i also replaced the wear ring with a oem seadoo replacement. besides the prop i installed a r&d intake and a free flow exhaust section that replaces the restrictive sound suppression system.

    before everthing was installed (stock) i could get 63mph on the seadoo speedo ( i know its not accurate) with what i have done i could only get it to 58 today at 7000 rpms + or - a few. conditions were abot 80 and pretty calm. it was in a river so there is a current so i tryied both directions and i think a gained 1mph with the current so basicly it was the same. also both of these readings are from the same river.

    now what i need to know is. what part is causing the decrease in power. in my opinion its the prop. i know the more air you can take in and let out of motor the better it runs but i could be wrong. what i don't want to do is keep going back in forth from my house to the river doing test so anything i can eliminate would be great.

    anything you guys could do for help would be greatly appreciated ive learnt so much form you guys already. and i'm deff glad i came across this forum

    Thats way too much prop for a NA motor. That prop needs a SC behind it to turn it...You could take some bend out of the prop, get the R's back up....

    Actually, there really is no other prop for the ski othr than that one. since you are not a SC'd or IC's motor, you only have the 2 choices (12/20 or 13/20) because your driveshaft is a different size...

    I would either depitch the Solas, or get a stocker and pitch that one...
