    I run an R&D grate, skat trac impeller and worx sponsons. Pretty much stock motor other than I blocked of the oil injection and removed the driveshaft out of the oil pump, replace all fuel lines and clean filters in the carbs. Also, 96's are bad for two things exhaust leaks and gas tank leaks...

    The gsx's are sweet though I love mine and the wear ring it destroyed today

    96xpss will chime in, his mods will work the same for you on your GSX. I have a very similar setup with, I think the only major difference being head mod and the use of the MSD enhancer..... and tuning experience!

    My mods are mainly engine mods, these guys are the ones to ask about handling mods as they know what works best for your ski.

    I would try an XO prop versus the Skat 17/22, but both have proven better than stock. Grates on your ski will slow you down, sadly, no one makes one that doesn't. So plan to lose about 1 mph on top if you install a grate.
