    Finally don't want to sell it.....Thanks!

    Thanks to everyone on this forum! What a difference! I can actually use it not worrying about the f.....ing ceramic washers blowing up. Feels good! Can't believe the difference the air intake, riva 2 wheel and new impeller made! Great suggestions from everyone here! Performance is much better! Faster hole and just about 60 miles per hour. depending on wind and water temp.

    So what's next? looking for mid 60s. Intercooler?

    Thanks again.....

    Any pictures of how you did your intake? Which way did you end up going?

    I used Mike E's air intake design minus the flexible tubing to the old air box. I used a catch can for oil breather and a computer CPU cooler for the regulator. Keeps the oil out of the supercharger and the filter clean. I'm probably going to change the design to a shorter tube with less bends. not sure yet.

    Hey VX1 If I add an intercooler will I need to change the pitch on the impeller? I'm at 14/19 now.

    Yep. An external IC will easily add 200+ RPMs. If you're doing 60mph with your current mods, I'm assuming you're pretty much maxed out at 8100 or more RPMs. so any more power, and you'll have to modify the prop to take advantage of that power. Probably need 14/19 +2mm. You'd need a lot more power still, to move up to the 15/20.
