    performance upgrades

    looking at doing some more upgrades with some money i earned this weekend doing some side work....now my washers already blew up at 15 hours which i haven't had the ski back out since so i don't want to do any engine mods i.e. green wheel external intercooler etc. so i've been staying away from that. i have already made my own r.e. block offs and have a riva power filter 3" but am looking at buying some skegs r&d wedge and the riva grate but am wondering what kind of gains i would see with this set up and of course more to come. will i be able to bend the stock prop enough for the more r's that the motor will be turning with the power pipe?

    You might want to wait till you actually see your r's first.

    Don't worry about add mm yet unless you ski was at 8000 rpm before.

    Have the washers been replaced yet? Were the 2 sieves cleaned of the ceramic bits? Were the oil pumps checked for gouges? If not, you may want to save your money for the repairs if you're out of warranty... Ron
