    Replace the factory air box with aftermarket flame arresters and rejet the carbs. Make sure you have the rubber diaper on the exhaust manifold.

    Not really go fast goodies but they will help with long term reliability.

    You did all that in ONE DAY???

    The canadian's answer to your question was perfect.

    Best bang-for-the-buck is Fly/ProK F/A, proper jetting and MEPH timing adjustment. ~$100 and big gains.

    If you just rebuilt the motor then have the timing checked and adjusted at the dealer. If it's like my 98 GTX you can check the timing yourself but the adjustment has to be done at the dealer with the Seadoo programmer.
