    Speed mods - Help a newbie

    Got the ski going 69 mph the other day, and guess what, that is NOT enough speed. I need more. I have an 04' RXP

    I would like to hear your take on the best mods to do that will give me the biggest gains. Keep in mind that I do not have an endless checkbook.

    I want to keep the reliability and "dick around" factor after the mods are installed to a minimum.

    I do not have alot of time, with work and a couple of kids, to keep fine tuning. I want to bolt on some mods and gain speed without any reliability issues (We all want that right)

    What are your suggestions?

    Jerry:

    Looking on the Riva site at the powerfilter, is there any issue with water getting into the filter?

    Looks like I could handle installing these mods. The only one that looks like it is a bit more technical is the impeller install.

    What will this give me for gains? +-(what you suggested)

    I never had any issues with water ingestion.

    You should be able to hold 70-71 in the heat with better acceleration with those mods.
