    I talked to Glenn at R&D many times via email about the safety of the R1 and it is a great option! The soft cut will start at 200 (or 250) rpms before the hard limiter and you can have the limiter custom set for free if you need to. Glenn also informed me that if the gas is 10% ethanol than the R1 will be a better choice than the R2 on stock boost because the ethanol counteracts the more advanced timing on the R2.

    "Hi Mike,

    Your questions are very difficult to correctly answer. You must understand that the timing in the OEM ECU is rpm/boost referenced, therefore it is a continuously moving target. So the timing will vary depending on what rpm range you are in and what boost pressure you have at that particular moment.
    What would help me more to suggest the best program, is to determine what fuel you are using and what percentage of ethanol is in it. If your local station has 10% ethanol in the fuel I would recommend the R1. If there is less than 10% ethanol, the R2 is the more powerful choice.
    We always keep in mind the clutch when developing ignition curves for our ECU programs. We have successfully used both the R1 and R2 programs in offshore racing. Last year we used the R2 with a C3 boost wheel (13 pound boost) and finished second place on an FZR in the Pro class at the Mark Hahn 300. In the race the engines are at peek rpm for 5-6 hours with the only break being a few 65-95 second fuel stops. We understand the reliability thing, because we do a lot of offshore racing ourselves. The reliability is definitely there.
    If you choose to go with the R2 and want the rev limiter at 8400 we can do that for you at no extra charge. Just specify that detail in a note when you send in the ECU."

    The R 1would be a great choice since thr rev limiter is 8500 which seems very safe on these motors. Just prop you ski for 8300-8400 rpms and you will be good to go with your mods and a c-3 Tommy Jordan

    At what point does the tunnel reinforcement need to be done. Would it be needed with stock wheel and a r3 tune?

    With an E1 wheel and stock ecu running 79-80 I was already starting to get some cracking, so anything above 78 I would be cautious.

    Honestly It can happen to a stock boat or to a 90 mph boat! It's really just your luck of the draw.. It's just a insurance mod that u can do so u don't bust the tunnel and be left with a messed up hull.

    I have seen a fZR tunnel split bad on a sk that was only running 74 mph and had never seen any rough water conditions at all. Tommy Jordan
