I just got the new PWI mag. On page 69 is an ad for POWERCHIP. They claim 3mph+ and 200rpm higher for 215 and 255hp Seadoos for $690. They give no phone#, just a web address. On the web site I couldn't find anything for Seadoos, just cars. They had a phone#, but they are closed(9-5pm pacific time). Anybody heard of this? Phil

Yeah it tricks your ECU into thinking your RPM's are 200 lower than what they really are. 100 rpm usually equals 1 mph in speed. Using the dreamometer on your ski a 2 mph increase would be 3. In the meantime your stock valvetrain floats a valve and you get all kinds of fun going on when the piston introduces itself to the floating valve.

The way to get more speed is thru tried and true mods.
The computer re programming is to compliment the mods,
not the other way around.
I would not trust a "chip".. Maybe it's also advancing timing, etc.=

I could be wrong, but isn't that thread about
"ReMapping" your oem ecm???
Not just installing a "chip" of sorts...
You would really need to know your shizzle to guess at
the changes you would need to match your mods.
A generic "chip" would really be assuming a lot.
A custom remap would take into consideration your mods/needs

I'm pretty sure its a remapped ECU. There was talk about being able to choose what rev limiter you want and other thing depending on your mods and being able to get a fully programmable ECU where you could adjust anything you wanted yourself, but I think right it's just getting your ECU reprogrammed with their map.

There is no chip that can be swapped in Sea Doo ECU, the name of the company is Superchip. What they are releasing now has been tested safe for stock ski's and is not tuneable by the user. A lot of people are already modified past the point that this re-map would be something that they could use but there are plans for versions mapped specifically for your level of modification and another that can be tuned by the user. This of course isn't for everyone as a person could make changes that could cause their engine to fail if they didn't know what they were doing.
read the thread, representatives from the company and Greenhulk had some input that should answer most questions.
