    sho redlining issues

    Hey guys, im pretty new around. To start of my SHO was doing 68.7 mph GPS bone stock out the box. i went ahead and put in the free-flow, air intake, and grate with pump seal kit. and it only went up to 69.4 it red lines all through out the run. I did notice a big difference in acceleration. Has this happened to anyone?

    This has happened to others. Your prop needs to be a different pitch. But until you get a new ECU or something to bypass the rev limiter...you will be close to it all the time.

    Is it not enough just pitching the prob? and is there something else i can do to eliminate it even more?

    I understand my ski is a little faster than the usual, does this have anything to do with it, what were you numbers before and after modded?

    I ment with any mods at all, i was doing 68.7, me driving my friend driving 69.1 Bone Stock, i dont think those are tipical or common numbers. In other words with filter and exhaust all i got was acceleration and almost no difference in speed, because of the red limiter

    With how strong your ski is and your mods you should be running this impeller

    Or you can add pitch to your stock impeller.
