    Electric Trim nozzles - What Polaris models benefit from them?

    Some Polaris models came with electric trim, and sometimes I read about owners adding trim nozzles to some of the models that did not come that way from the factory.

    For those models that did NOT come with trim from the factory, which ones would benefit from retrofitting it?

    Did trim become less important as the hulls got longer (3 seaters) and more V shaped (MSX)?
    Could trim still help these boats in rough, or smooth, waters?

    On a boat as the MSX a trim will be beneficial in getting the nose down quicker for a faster hole shot upon acceleration.

    Are there any examples around here of an MSX with trim added?

    Any other Polaris models that might be good candidates for adding trim?

    I added electric trim to my SLTX and have a Yamaha set up for one of my Matrix, it will be my first Winter project.
    I wouldn't see why any 2 seater Polaris wouldn't benefit from a trim system, although I think they all have it already??

    I think it would make a great update.

    Everyone is telling me to install it on the G/F's conversion. I don't want to confuse her with trim up is for speed and down is for faster planing/less porpoise. 2* wedge, no trim, OP R plate, and SLT sponsons do pretty good. 52.8 MPH on GPS with very little porpoising.

    What happens when you go to the 4 degree? Too much porpoising even with the sponsosns?

    Haven't tried. A certain gentleman in Oswego told me 2* worked best for the 2 seater. But that was with NO sponsons at that time he told me that.

    The trim add was a great benefit to my 650 but the 6 degree wedge destroyed the ride and couldn't be trimmed out enough to compensate for it
