neal300zx's RXT build
Well, I figured that since the two most informative threads I have found on this site so far are jpeconsult and Ried's build thread I would start my own. I picked up a stock RXT a few weeks ago with 34 hours. My current plans are:
SC - Riva metal washers and Green wheel, Kanaflex 4 " intake, Riva Catch Can, Riva freeflow exhaust, OPAS delete, Solas 14/19r, Riva intake grate, Riva wedge, filled ride plate holes. Should have all of this done by next weekend to get a good base line. I currently have the Catch installed and the ride plate holes filled. I am waiting on the Kanaflex from Moreland hose. jpeconsult will be sending out my new 14/19 with the Riva OPAS delete kit on Monday. SC going to Jerry on Monday also. Also ordered the touch up kit from Spectrumcolor for a gouge I have on the front of the ski.
My future plans (next month or so) are XS intercoller kit and 42s and see where that puts me. From there.. who knows. I have a feeling this could get expensive though.

First question. Pulled the pump tonight and noticed something is missing. It is a bolt with some type of thick bushing on top of the ride plate. I noticed there is also one on the pump housing. Is there suppose to be one of these on both sides? Check out the pics. Also check out my impeller and wear ring

Neal...You would have gained speed with just a wear ring and impeller repair!
Also, thanks for the compliments, but if you haven't already don so, you should read Steven's (Skoepp) "Tested new mods with results". He is crazy detailed in mod testing, tweeking and performing. He posts a lot of pictures in his posts...Although he doesn't have a RXT, he did have a GTX 185 and replaced it with a RXT-X and also has a RXP. Its just a plain awesome thread. Read it!
Another suggestion. You should test after each mod to give you an idea of what each mod is giving you. When you do multiple mods at one time, it is hard to narrow down problems that WILL arrise! Good luck, man. --jeremy

Sorry. Also in picture 1...That hose is for the OPAS system. Once you remove the OPAS paddles and OPAS steering mechanism, you will need to plug the lfittings where that ho0se connects to. Just a head up.

I will have to go back and read Steven's thread. I started to but never finished.
On the testing, I plan to start after I get these base mods on it. Problem is the weather here. Hopefully it will hold up and I can get some results next weekend.

The top of the transom, where the hose is connected in your pic, I think you can find some little rubber caps that will fit over the nipple...then clamp it down. Take a picture to the hardware store and brose the isles.
