    Holeshot kits are for not allowing water into the water box at low rpms so when you take off you don't have to push a bunch of water out of the exaust which gives you alot more acceleration on the holeshot... RPM can be set where desired which most people have it come in between 3300-3500rpms....

    Its probably the single best mod Ive done to my ski! Everything claimed is accurate... The valve leaves the box dry at idle so from a dead stop the engine doesnt waist power to clear out the box before launching... once you hit 3500 rpm the valve opens allowing cool water into the water box... It makes the ski sound real nasty too!!!!!!!!!! I love that mod!!!! It works!!!!!

    I had Carl install this on my XLT 1200.

    I definitely notice a difference.

    I agree with Inkaddict, my ski sounds great too.

    just do it

    just dont Armor-All your seat..... you may not have a ski under you when you squeeze the throttle.

    line up 2 identical skis in a race one "with"... one "without"........
    ( just pray yours is the "with" )

    A great mod. I purchased one from Carl a couple of years ago. We need everything we can get to help out of the hole.

    Isn't this the truth!

    This is my story on before and after.

    I just had the normal under the ski mods. Rideplate, Grate, PPK, ect. I was getting beat out of the hole by my friends RXDI. It would jump out like 2 lengths from a stop, I would pass him quickly but damn.

    After the Jetworks mod we lined them up and I jumped out like 5 boat lengths on him over and over again from a stop. It made it not even close out of the hole.


    Anyways big gains!
