    I bored out a sho nozzle to 94 to match my 89 nozzle ski went faster (not much) but made the steering very touchey, which scared the crap outta me.. rule of thumb is 5mm over what the exit nozzle is.

    I've heard of extending the nozzle for better handling. I think boring it would also weaken it. Buy a pro tec. And 5 degree pump nozzle. Check out Island racing website.

    the longer will slow you down but, can be cut to the same length as the stock and get the speed back and have a safer nozzle, I also cut one down 1/2 shorter than stock and picked up .5 but turned like a turd

    the plastic OEM ones break from 2008-back

    Use an aftermarket RIVA or R&D or 2008 OEM SHO nozzle.

    Go out and jump a good wave with a stock nozzle, nit the sand when you bottom out and it is all over! Did that with my bored out SHO nozzle had a water leek from the trim cable nozzle was still like new! Aftermarket parts that everyone else has tried, With good results. SHO nozzle on all three of my boats!

    Bored out, or stock? Any gains/losses if unbored? I have a couple sitting in my garage, but I've heard that they are bad for top speed and acceleration
