Thread: ? on some mods

  1. #1

    ? on some mods

    I wanted to add a 2 degree wedge and a vts extension, will this help my top end speed or is it a waste of money? Also was wondering about the breather catch can kit is this something that helps or is it a waste of money? Also was wondering if I should send my stock prop off and have it shaved for top end speed or would I get more out of a solas 14-19.

    We have seen as much as 1 solid MPH with the addition of the wedge...

    The pump extention should give you close to 2 mph...

    I just added a wedge and VTS ext and trimmed my bucket .. got a solid 1 + gain

    I would upgrade intake\impeller and grate before the wedge though..

    I have a r&d intake grate and a riva power filter already added but I am only getting 7360-7400 rpms and 64 mph. I have also changed my washers and bearings. Elevation 5000 ft outside temp 90 water temp 73. I am looking to get some more mph and rpms with the wedge, extension and solas 14/19 prop.

    You need to work on acquiring some power adding mods before you go and invest in all the minor hull mods. Sure you'll go maybe a mph faster with a wedge but you will much rather want to spin 8100 rpms. Believe me, you are down on boost by A LOT and are missing out on the experience of the supercharged/intercooled machine. You'll have to upgrade your supercharger, intercooler, and air intake to make up for the 5000 ft elevation.
