    Lightbulb ive got us$500 for more mods... any ideas ?

    Hi Guys...

    Ive landed up with some extra money in my budget for my jetski..

    I have everything in my signature as well as the riva EFI, powervalve clips, new powervalve gaskets.

    My only problem is.. i am unable to send any parts from south africa to be modded. (jims plate and sonic booms are out)

    Im considering 05 gasket, then ill get my head skimmed to 150psi (run premium 95 fuel, however i can add an oxidiser - touline or something similar if i need to get it to race fuel spec (102octane)

    Race flame arrestor.

    so it leaves me with around 500.

    (shipping will be to charlotte, usa)

    Any suggestions, due to the summer season starting now.. i really dont feel like pulling my engine

    You do not have to send a plate to get it mod for a GPR i have them in stock ready to go, Or you can buy it direct from Jerry's online store.

    not after top speed at all. hence the 13/19swirl, autodrop, blueprinted pump, 1200grate, full trim tabs.

    Im one of the few guys here thats gone for holeshot and handling over topend.

    Im thinking of saving the money and rebuilding the motor next year: trued and welded crank, 4deg timing key, ported cylinders, *maybe:gas valves*i do love my powervalves*, vf3's, 1390bb and then repitch to 13/22

    BTW I get a hell of a hole shot with my 05 pump and top speed it all how you set it up. The swirl will help you stay hooked up better in the chop.

    thanks for your input.

    .. seems im going to have to wait till winter next year, as its starting to warm up for jetski season. Basically no matter what else i want to do, i have to pull the engine.. besides gas operated powervalves or the HO pump. Ill def go HO pump when I have enough engine power, or will i get a magnum pump.. mmm love my swirl

    My plan now is to save, because i estimate ill need approx us$3000 to finish what i have planned.
