    Does this sound right!!

    I took out the rxt after adding a 4" rear intake, GH waterbox, Jims plate with skeggs - holes not filled yet, 160# thermostat, and i added 2mm to the 14/17r prop...still have the XS IC/injectors and Greenwheel to get..

    didnt get good speed numbers due to the GPS was acting funny, but rpms were 8050/8100 and the one run i did get before the gps went out was 69.4 before the end of the run in slight chop, I was getting a constant 68 at 8150 before I added these, Shouldn't i be faster than I am??

    boost number really didnt change at all, I thought the rear air would give me some extra...

    riva 3" to rear 4" should equal about 100 rpms
    waterbox should be a +100/150 over the riva thru hull
    I dont know how much Jims plate would add..

    Im confused and dissapointed..I thought it would be faster than it is...

    any advise?

    speed

    You kind of answered your own question... It does not take much chop to destroy your top speed #'s.. I can run 80+ all day then hit some chop and can not get over 75-76 mph.. Don't get frustrated, you should see the lake Riva test on, Glass and private, We all chase there #'s and what most don"t know is that there posted speeds are the best in perfect conditions with "Dr.'s of speed close by"
    Keep trying, the speed will come!

    With your previous run, was it in colder air and water temps vs what you ran after the mods I know that the colder the water/air the faster you go. Perhaps that may be a factor. Could you please post pics of your rear air set up on your rxt. Thanks!

    finally got to test the RXT in some flat water..

    with the addition of the 14/17 +2, greenbox, jims plate w/skeggs holes not filled in, and 4" rear intake..

    the best i could get was 8040 and 69.9 with a full tank..before is listed in my sig

    almost broke the 70 mark..

    is this about right or am i missing some?? +1.2mph sounds low to me...
