    well i don't know it all by any means (i wish i knew 1/2 of what some of these guys know) . I have had some play time on two Fuel injected boats last summer in my area here which both had Fuel Controllers on them (guys i used to ride with).

    It just takes time to get the right dial on those things but generally every ski is different in some way shape or form. With a list of mods, i can get it close but not perfect (unless i have a summer with it).

    There is a lot that i do not know, but i take notes on things every night at the computer from some of the best tuners out there. Billy is a great one to learn from (RX951), Richard Patterson (WFO), Sponge Racing, Spud out in California, Mark Clemons (Hydrotoys), Forrest (GPRPittman), and many many others.
    Most of the time i will not know an answer but can get it for you quickly from some of the others out there.

    But i am glad that worked out for you. That is why the forum is here my friend!

    I have a prop i want to send to you to try out. Are you still spinning a 13/19 at those rpms?

    You could use a taller prop to bring those rpms back down into the power band 7150-7190 range. I have a 14/19 but i dont think that is going to be enough for you.

    Send me your address anyway and i will send this prop to you to try out and if it works for you, then you can have it to keep. I will take care of shipping, but i would like to know what it does (and it may not help much--but let's see).

    See goblin,who else would help you out like John.
    I'm not trying to start a war people,I have seldom seen people offering to send a part out then tell em they can keep it,no charge.

    10-4 on that - your right. Ignore my last PM to you then.
    That is great -lets try the 14/20 and see what the rpm's are. Try and test it in the same conditions (temperature mainly).

    Let us know!! And remember that changing props may require a little tweeking of the EFI Controller in order to spin a taller prop to the right rpm range. Lets see what it does first though.
