    Today Frank and I did the follow mods to it:

    Refilled the ride plate and intake grate holes
    Redid the air intake where it uses the stock elbow and 4 inch hose with K&N in the front of the hull.
    Installed the new Rotax Racing SC impeller
    Installed 42lb injectors

    First run today:

    We thought the injectors were possibly making it too rich, so we reinstalled the stock injectors. We went out for some more runs on the warm engine and I got this:

    So the questions I have are:

    Is that the right amount of boost for this SC impeller at 8100-8150 RPM?
    Is something wrong or is the heat just killing me?

    It seems I have a problem or the impeller isn't adding anything to my setup. Anyone got any ideas on potential probs? Thanks.

    I put mine on today and got 10.2 at 8350. May have a little leak or something.

    your Rpms low. the boost will rise as you gain rpms. Sounds like you need a re pitch. You should be at least 8400rpms. If you lighten your valve train you should pitch your prop to 8500. that will get you more speed for sure.

    Jarret just for info. My ski runs the same as yours with the same stuff in your first post.
    73.5mph at 8100
    8p.si. boost.

    DO you think all your boost is getting to the motor??
    No leaks?

    I`d deffinately throw some gauges on it just for insurance. But it does seem as though you have a boost leak.

    this is interesting

    I wonder if the difference between the Riva and RR is only felt if you run a RR ECU and turn more than 8100 RPM`s
