    If the pump tunnel is done correctly you shouldn't have anything to worry about. What year ski? If your scared about your oil lines or oil pump failure go to premix.

    Most crank failure comes from water intrusion.

    dont go to an after market nozzle if u jump the ski alot.the plastic one will break if u hit bottom,the metal one will stay in tact and damage everything else..

    your only going to break the nozzel if you land straight down rear first with the ski being vertical. If you watch how you jump and land more flat your fine. I jump 8-10 footers and never broke a nozzel and I have 150 hrs and 8 yrs on my ski..

    the sun deterates the stock nozzle and makes it brittle,a boat stored in a garage with 300 hours on can have a better condition nozzle than a outside sun stored 20 hour boat,
    i have read of them blowing out in wot runs,i think it was abbott and a few others that had them go in a straight line..
    if your going to jump waves get one for sure...
