    want more power without spending too much $$$$

    I have 2003 polaris virage water crafts
    what can I do to add more power with out spending too much money .
    Do they make exhausts for these toys that do just that?
    Maybe better sparks plugs or a better impeller to start with since it is still stock (You Know Like Soup, somebody elses quote)

    what you got?

    I have the virage model.
    I believe thats the lower model. I like the way they run but would like to play with them and learn the engines. learn to improve performance.
    therefore any good tech tips and products would be sweet to get me started. Who knows , I might get enough knowledge to start a project.

    I owned a virage for one season (I sold it to buy a ski boat). I thought it was plenty fun in that hull. To upgrade though, I would get into the motor last. I would start with;

    nujet prop (1-2 mph top end)(I believe the 7.0)
    ocean pro rideplate (easy 1mph and better tracking)
    Pump wedge (6 degree and easy 1mph)
    Adjust a thrust (claim 1-2mph but I have not tried it yet)
    Stub stacks (NO mph but much better throttle response and small midrange)

    Then, move to the heads (Randy at Watcon) (not sure of speeds but claims of a more crisp mid range is my understanding)

    The reason for my advice on this setup is the engine is not touched (with the heads being an exception) and you are making the parts around it work for you. This to me means a pretty reliable ski. There will be others with advice. There are great people on this site to help you with this. Just my .02.

    Good luck.

    Great catch. I forgot. I have the X45. The 5.0 is the right one.

    Thanks.

    virage

    keep the ride plate stock if you ride the lakes,the batwing is a smoother riding plate in chop,has a single carb,replace the reed petals with carbon tech light tension,big difference.has nu-jet prop on 5 vane aluminum stator,a 6 vane s/s will improve takeoff,92 domes and recurving the cdi will add punch in takeoff and midrange as will the reeds and the 6 stator will make it hookup,get the prop refurbished if it needs it
