    What is needed to go turbo?

    After seeing the supercharged boats get beat in the Riva Hydros,
    Im considering switching to a turbo set-up. Now that SCs are giving people just as much trouble as the old turbo skis.... it only makes sence... TURBO!!!!

    Just do it bro.......imagine....no more SC washer worries...

    You know the fast turbo guys (Jerry included) so have them point you in the right direction. Get the bad-azz electronics so u can run wideband and EGT on each cylinder.......and get ready to become proficient with your laptop and do alot of speed runs at Ida for pin-point tuning.

    Wastegate will allow you to tune your boost according to you fuel level (big-bonus on long club rides).....try to find a water-jacketed turbo and/or find out what other have been doing to isolate turbo heat from the deck/hull. OH......and get ready to smoke the competiton.....ur only limited by your imagination and your checkbook...

    Thanks for the incouraging info...
    These sc set-ups are getting as expensive as the turbos... AND, now the turbos have been doing really good lately... More issues from SC boats...Either the washers are crap or you bust the gears.... Im not excited about any of this...
    Turbos give you as much boost as you want... one day 15psi then next day 20psi...
    Its TURBO TIME!!!

    ohhh I see that you finally saw the light........all I can tell is that a tubo set-up will not give you as many problems as a supecharger set-up if it is done and tuned right for your riding style and application...
