    are you sure you are supposed to tweek the prop to 8100???
    i thought the X skis were on teh rev limiter a tad sooner than the older 4tecs...
    i would leave it alone for a stock prop tht is pretty good #'s.
    maybe get a diff prop for better overall performance??
    sounds like your setup is goin like a bat outta hellllllll!!!!

    No, not on an X model. The stock ECU cuts timing drastically after 8000 RPM's. It will make the most power at 8000 R's

    Did you remove the waterbox? Or did you mean the resonator?

    No, that is the resonator. The waterbox is the cylindrical thing on the back left as you are sitting on the ski.

    You would gain an annoyingly loud ski.

    And that was with a 10% discount. You can order the R&D performer kit at the Green Hulk store and get the discount. Just put in GREENHULK, in the coupon section and the discount should be applied.(Jerry, correct me if I got it wrong)

    Sponson update:
    Just got back from the lake where the temperature was a warm 117deg. I put the sponsons in the bottom position, which is for offshore and aggressive riding. I had a full tank of gas and the cooler in the front just like before. Actually I had a little more gas than this morning. My average was around 70mph in choppy water. So really, I don't think I lost any speed. Morning temp was between 90 and 95, so I had a big change in air density.

    The handling was just incredible. I was carving turn after turn, at any speed I chose. At this time of day all the boats are heading back to the dock, so there was no shortage of wakes to turn through. I seriously though I could get this thing to spin out. No way. I was pushing as hard as I could. Then I thought, well I'll just put the trim full nose up. It was already there. When I put the trim full nose down, the turns just became more agressive.

    I highly recommend this kit as a must have if you intend to do any turning. Its extremely stable, and inspires confidence. I'm not that good, and these things made me look like a buoy race. And remember, if you don't like them, send them back for a refund.
    Great Job Man.....I just might have to look at some of those items.......
    Really do appreciate all of the time you took and I think your neighbor does to.....

    Oh by the way can you take a pic of the sponsons and the rear pump area just curious as to how it looks...I am starting to anodize my own parts at now after a friend showed me how to do it...I think I might anodize the cone and steering nozzle hell and whatever other parts I can......I call it the HOME BREW ANODIZE......Got real good at to.....

    Too bad you decided to delete your post. This was a very good job, and the type of thing we welcome here. You can't let the distractions and idiots get to you. As you SHOULD have noticed, I deleted the post of the idiot... his first post. Obviously a troll.
