    05 GTX LTD LOSS of power

    Went out on the lake today could only get 6600 rpm, idle was very rough and I got major power surges. I have a stage two kit with metal washers. The SC only has 3hours on it since its has been rebuilt Major power surges also occurred . Is this my SC? were should I start.

    RPMs on the hose don't mean anything. The ski needs to be in the water and under a load. My guess is the plugs will do it... Ron

    wet tested the ski on the lake today. Speed 0.5 mph faster than my best time, RPM were 8150 all day. It was the plugs and stale fuel. Used stock plugs to replace the foul ones. Are there any plugs less pronged to foul?

    any plugs will foul with old gas and lack of use.
    good to hear it was a simple fix!
