    What do you guys suggest??

    Im interested in modding my ski, but have a limited budget. My goal, for now, is to get at least 75-77mph out of it, without spending $1000's of dollars. Some mods I know I want are... O.P.A.S., intake and exaust. What are my best options for exhaust... shorty water box, riva thru hull?? and for the intake, is a homemade one a good option?? Im new to the whole seadoo scene so just looking for a little guidance. I'd appreciate if someone can share their setup, and/or any ideas they might have. How are the results from the "green charger", is it worth it, or should I wait and buy a supercharger down the road?? Thanx in advance guys

    Are you talking OPAS removal? if so go with the REs much better than Riva pros.

    Best for exhaust is probably a green box with riva through hull(or Rude what ever you prefer)

    Homemade is the best right now, if you are shooting for 77 definatly go for the 4" rear intake.

    Green Wheel is damn good, so good Riva copied it, as soon as I get my ski wet I'll let you know how it works

    A tried, true, and proven reliable setup is a basic Riva Stage 1 + the Greenwheel. You'll have to substitue a 15/20r prop for the Stage 1 14/19R though. You can get out for around $1000 and will do 74 - 75 mph if you also do the free mod's.

    If you're willing to deal with a little hand-fab'ing and want more speed, then do a DIY 4" intake, DIY XS Intercooler, and 42 lb/hr injectors. You'll have to shell out a total of about $1600, but it'll run about 77 mph if set up right.
