    Would an afterburner be possible for a jet ski?

    has anyone ever had the idea, is it practical? I was thinking of building something like an after burner on jets. that like trim, you can adjust the nossel size at the touch of a button to incrase and decresase the diameter. Any ideas?
    ps. i know this might be crazy

    haha. I'm serious, have something like extendable wedges like the trim, have it sort of like an extendable wedge that as t gets longer it gets skinnier, and when u brng it in it gets bigger, just an idea!

    What your talking about is a variable venturi. An afterburner dumps raw fuel into the exhaust of a jet engine. So, no afterburner. Check this out. The work has already been done for you. www.wetwolf.com

    Actually, it would be pretty cool. Imagine having a 60mm nozzle on takeoff, that squeezes down to 55mm at top speed, using wetwolfs technique of pressure control. Maybe even some type of manual control too?

    but it says it's only for stock un-modified motors (the 4-tec version). What we need is the variable-pitch impeller.........
