    I would say you are right where you need to be
    Wait till fall when it cools off and you will gain an INSTANT 1mph+

    Ran my S3, 42s, and X/S I/C, Rear Air Kit today for the first time...good results for a first run...with 1 out of the 15/20 it ran 8100 steady and strong at 74.0 ...think I am on the limiter...thoughts?

    I couldn't get a 'perfect' run because river traffic was high...but the water surface was a little choppy... probably 9 of 10...I guess is the best way I can describe it...

    I have the Rear Air and have not cut the grab handle yet...but plan to do so...

    I think I need to give the prop some pitch back...

    You guys with similar setup...have you tweaked your 15/20s any?

    Any other advice/comments?

    If you are at 8100 then you are good. Definately cut holes for more air, see if that raises the RPM's. If it does or when the weather cools you will probably need to repitch. OR get an adjustable venturi and make it easy on yourself.

    cut holes in the grab rail and find you some glass water.by cutting holes in the grab rail I gained another 50 to 100rpms. if your at 8100 with the stock nozzle you will most likely have to get the adj nozzle to bring the rpms back down especially with cooler temps coming

    Grab handle is going to get done soon, this week,...no doubt

    Boost gauge going in soon too...

    I thougth the goal was 8050 with flashes of 8100...that is the peak of the power curve for the 04/05 ecu is it not?

    It pulls to 8100 with EASE...but stops dead right there...as if that was the limit...although I know technically it should go 8150+

    I believe that I should be in the 75+ range in this weather with this nozzle and these mods...76 or 77 and even higher seems to be acheivable with the perfect pitch/nozzle/weather/water surface combo

    Ideally 8100 with flashes of 8120-40 IMO.
    You said you didn't run on glass so that would be 1 mph EASY right there.
