Got the Kanaflex installed today
The Kanaflex is in, going to take the ski to Caddo Saturday to try it out .
Went pretty well, I like how the Spectre filter looks - matches the paint. Anyone want to buy an R&D filter with 10-hours?
Used 4" drain/sewer pipe fittings instead of 3" sch 40 PVC at the filter. Much better flow path.

Did you feel that the pump wedge was a worthwhile mod?

I believe the wedge helps a little bit.
STS has alot of mods and this can get quite expensive. I am at the point where I have to spend alot to gain a little more speed, but if I were plan a few mods, they would be the following:
New Riva Waterbox / Rude exhaust tip
X-charger upgrade w/ 50 lb injectors and also the rising rate fuel pressure regulator.
Ecu reflash with Seadoo Centre up to 8400-50ish rev limit.

I'm thinking about doing the following, and over the winter so I've got some time.
ET 137 wheel, 48# injectors, BOV, free flow exhaust, OPAS Blockoff, waterbox (I really like the sound of the TDR box), was thinking about skegs too, but we'll have to see how much time I've got. I'm not sure if I want to buy a prop now and repitch it after the winter, OR if I should just deal with feathering the throttle to stay in the 8050 range for now. Might add the pump wedge to my list too if it helps (every little bit right?)
From looking at your mod list it doesn't really look like you've spent THAT much and you've certainly got some great results. The only reason I'm even thinking about the wheel in the charger is that at this rate i'll be doing a rebuild at the end of this year anyway and while I've got it cracked open I might as well :-p.

I have approx. $1300 in it in mods and am really happy to be close to 75mph. I always wanted to shoot for 80ish, but from here on, if I bought new parts, it would cost a atleast a couple grand or better to get there and that is hard to justify for 5mph.
To be honest, it's hard riding at high speed and you need to be looking a long ways in front of you and all around you all the time to ensure some jerkoff isn't getting too close.
Some people may think I'm snobby because I don't take my hands off the bars and waive when I go by, but if I am at WOT, I am completely focused on what's going on around me because stuff can come up in seconds.
Also, keep a watch on your pump tunnel. People have been having some issues with their's and mine has developed small spider cracks on the port side. This may be due to speeds and pressure, or hull flex as I jump waves, or both. I just pay attention to the tunnel now after every ride, hoping the thing doesn't blow out. Some have had this happen.
