    XPL mild setup- opinions

    I had a little lower rod bearing problem with my other XP..... so it's getting an overhaul.

    How do you think this set up will run? Suggestions?

    Rinaldis
    44 NOVIs
    White Pipe 97.5 (port matched to manifold)
    Shortened and fully ported manifold
    Miller Intake
    Miller Head, 51cc domes
    Unported Miller Big Bore
    Re-mapped MPEM with added timing
    100 octane
    97 xp ride plate
    new plastic pump
    new solas 15/20 concord

    I figured I could get some RPMS from extra timing, as most of the other parts are pump gas easy and not really geard towards getting a high RPM platform.......

    The only reason for the 100 octane is 1) this ski will always be trailered next to my XPL BB set up which must run on 100 octane, so why not make them both 100 octane? If I have to send in the MPEM to have the rev limiter bumped, it costs 300 bucks. Why waste 300 hundred on just rev limiter increase when I can ramp up the timing for 100 octane use.

    Thanks! I have that article next to my desk, on my mag rack in the bathroom, and in my 951 book! LOL...


    Kind of what I'm copying..... but there are some things in there aren't mentioned in the thread that I have talked to Ben about.

    Also doesn't mention reliability, which I guess I didn't either.

    It will be my girlfriend's boat to ride, and she likes to ride part throttle, and doesn't really know what to listen / feel for.

    I don't want her to have to ride a certain way.

    Possible with this kind of set up?

    I dont get the Novi's unless you got them laying around and all the stuff seems a waste on your girlfriend. She would probably be just as happy on a stock boat with maybe some PROK's and a Head.. No offense ment to your Girl Friend

    Hey...my girl likes to go fast.....And the NOVIs over the stock carbs are a huge improvement.

    Oh, and to answer your original post.. I think she will run fine.. Should have some good low end kick and decent throttle response...

    The key is going to be her 1/2 throttle riding, and getting the ski not to lean out at that point..

    Thanks Dan,... I'd show you boobies, but well.... you konw her!!! Only people who don't know get to see boobies! LOL...

    For those who don't know.... Dan's wife is just as hot...


    Yes, getting her past the part throttle riding is a matter of time. For some reason the SPX that hit her skull going full speed made her timid!?!
