XSPower Testimonial speed results
My best speed from ALL last season was 67.1. with a 13.5/17.5
I've added the XSPower and my custom plumbing (18inch total) and now using a 14/18.5 with a mm steeper.
My wife and I went for a recreational cruise/picnic. I had about 20-25pounds in the front (4towels,72ounce camel pack,picnic bag with lots of food,2 floats, tow rope, picnic sheet,water bag filled with miscellaeous, float pump, 3 rubber bumpers, extra clothing).
My wife had to go to the bathroom so I was able to do some solo runs on one bar off a full tank.
I was in 86air and 74water. I did about 4 runs back and forth and was at 69 every time with one run at 69.2.
I think I have the impeller dialed in because during the day ride I would see a 8050 come out every once in awhile. I might try go a mm steeper if I'm still at 8100 when we get to the 90's.
With my wife on it and sitting close to the wheel we were running 68-68.5 all day. I used to be at 64-65 with my wife and the front bucket loaded. This thing is pulling out of the hole great. My wife even said the ride seems more intense what have you done.
Very little oil in the catch can too. I think I've go it dialed.
I bet with a lighter load in the front , less gas I'll be seeing 70+.
Memorial weekend I'll definitaly have some good solo runs and be able to join the RTX/GTX 70+ club
Then June 2nd weekend I have a work outting at the lake and I'll be with 2 gpr's !
When I get a wheel and skegs I bet I'll see some real good numbers.
Shibby I can guarantee the XSpower gives 2+mph. I'm the 4th one with the same results. I think I'm going to get 3 mph out of it. If not 3.5.

You should have gone to the bathroom as well. Bet you would gain. Pull over and blow dirt next. Thats some great weight savings as well.

i'm startin to be a believer kinch!! i honestly actually think it might outperform the riva to tell u truthfully. between work and some mechanical problems, my ski hasn't hit the water in a few weeks. i haven't even touched it or uncovered it in days bc i got no time left to spare anymore. Kinda sucks, but i need the money and that's coming with REAL long hours.
u'd definitely be over 70 with no gear and no gas and down in superman... u'd gain 1mph IMO by unloading everything and gettin down on the ski.
