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?

i would get a cold air intake, PPG pitched Solas prop and a Riva intake grate.

Rough cost numbers on what you suggested?

Riva Power Filter $225
PPG Pitched Solas $300
Riva Intake Grate $130

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.

How difficult is the powerfilter install .

it's a pain in the ass, but worth the effort!

yea, you have to pull your entire stock intake tract out. It's really not all that bad though. go for it!
