    Really though add compression flame arrestors, 85/88 nozzle combo, 17/22 swirl prop after that you get into serious mods

    Matt,

    I'm going to assume it's totaly stock.

    Maybe not the easiest but the cheapest gains to wake up that ski for under $10:

    1. modify flame arrestor - remove the F/A element from the cage its in and take out all but the cource mesh one fine mesh piece and reinstall. (remove 5-6 fine layers)

    2. rejet carbs by changing LS jet to 75 and an 80 gram spring in each. ($5-$10)

    This is a MUST and not a performance mod;
    3. clean the carbs, filters and replace all tempo fuel lines. I like Gates fuel line ($20) and Thomas & Betts zipties w/ the stainless insert ($13). clean the fuel selector and tank.

    You will see great gains for a little change.

    BONUS - for that last 1MPH run the boat with no intake grate. ($...priceless)

    Good Luck,
    Erin
