    Can the word Ported and Reliable...

    Be put in the same sentence? I am looking to go to a faster setup over the winter. I know it is the dog days of summer still but it is better to plan ahead right?

    I want reliable,fast, and efi. I would also prefer not have to wrench on it hardcore all the time. Does a ported 1300 or 1390 fit this bill? And will a guy like my self beable to put it all together? Will the motor have to come out or can it do the work in the hull?

    my 1300 ported is more reliable than any stock ski i have had........... i run the dog sh#t out of it and it just keeps going and going. put almost 100 hrs on it sincelast year at WOT ....... i run both gaskets and have 155psi giving up a little speed for reliability it worth it to me. the 1400 IMHO is not as reliable(yet)

    chris, I think with a good amount of other mods, plate, prop correctly etc. I would belive a guy could do upper 70's and with a lot of tuning work possibly 80. just my .02
