    No matter how much HP you add to the engine if you can't get it to the water, it's just about worthless.
    I'd work on keeping the pump loaded more often with the available HP.
    R&D shortwing intake grate will give you a better top speed in the ugly stuff BUT be prepared to lose speed in glassy water conditions.
    Now if you were choosing 2 mods.........

    well, first off since they both run awesome, i was thinking of having them painted to get the looks squared away.....any estimate on that? nothing custom, just like three colors. Hull - white, above rub rails - blue, compartment cover and vents - black. Knock down the decals, just go with one POLARIS decal

    Following his lead, I'd go with sponsons. I see how much speed you lose everytime the boat splashes down from wave to wave. 46 MPH, hit a wave, down to 40 MPH and so on.
