How good is the advent, and is it worth the money? I manily want an aftermarket ignition to raise the stock 7000RPM or whatever it is rev limiter! I have the 66v motor btw... I also looked into the protec rev limiter upgrade... Any comments on that?

The stock CDI has a 7400 rev limit - peak power is at 7150 so 7400 is plenty high enough
So you shouldn't buy an Advent to raise the rev limit
The 2 advantages of an Advent are
1) more aggressive ignition timing curve that will raise HP across the entire RPM range
2) the Advent does a better job of managing the power valves - this is especially important in rough water - the stock CDI closes the power valves when the rev limiter is hit which happens when the pump gets unhooked in rough water - closing the PVs slows the ski down - the Advent will keep the PVs open so you don't lose speed (or feel like the brakes are constantly being put on and off)
