    When I bought the ski, the AFR gauge was in the glove box, which I liked cause it was protected and concealed. However, I had to always remove the glove box lid to adjust AFR which was not ideal. So... I decided to pickup one of the pods to mount the gauges in. I took my time and it came out really nice. Here are some pics. I used six small clamps to hold the cover in place. Then I cut the tach in a square and a little shorter in length to allow it to be slid in on an angle and moved into position. I wish I had just cut the size of the tach out mounted it to the piece cutout and use a cross brace, sortta like a trap door. Oh well, it is accessible when needed. Then I sanded the inside where I was going to glue, it, just enough to scuff both surfaces. Then I layed a nice even layer of Amzing Automotive Goop all around the edge of the cover. Put it in place and let it cure while the 6 clamps held it in place. Once it was cured, I used a 2" hole saw to cut the holes into the lid. This allowed a clean look from the inside. The only thing left to do is to get another plastic U mount for the AFR gauge since the way it was previously mounted was with silicone.

    Thanks Mike! Took about 3 days to complete just to make sure I took my time with it and glue cured before messing with it so it didnt become a hack job or mess.

    Little update...
    First I want to thank Jim for assisting me with my troubleshooting. I have been battling with fueling since before the drags. I seem to of had a few problems. First of all with the cooler weather I was on the limiter even with Jim pitching my impeller and my AFR was 13.0 at WOT. Had the ECU rev limiter increased to 9200.

    While trying to set AFR I was not able to lean the ski out and seemed like bad intercooler or heat soak. Jim took it out for a few and found the intercooler was not getting water. Come to find out the dedicated hose for the IC at the pump came off!! Installed and was able to get it to 12.5 AFR, but still not where I wanted it.

    Last time out I spent good time testing and found the ski would go rich (10.8 ) at 8000 RPM with 10Lbs boost then as I increased RPM to 8880 rpm and 17 Lbs boost it would go lean 12.7- 13.0. Took the ski out again and made some passes keeping an eye on the fuel pressure as well. At 8000 rpm and 10 lbs boost fuel pressure was about 58 as I increased throttle the fuel pressure would not rise any more. Which is why I was running lean at wot. Tried several injectors and same problem. If I stab the throttle it hits 70psi fuel pressure, but then drops down to about 58. If I bump the start button to cycle the fuel pump the fuel pressure hits the set pressure of 45 but then bleeds back down to 20 relatively quick then slowly drops to 0. I can actually the gas pouring into the tank from the return line from the regulator. So we narrowed down the problem to either one or the other or both. Fuel pump is going bad and cannot flow enough fuel or regulator is allowing the fuel to back-flow through the return line in the regulator. I took the regulator apart and looks good to the eye, but doesnt mean it is actually sealing up good. Going to go with a regulator first (either Fuel Labs or Aeromotive) and see what happens, then will look into another fuel pump if needed. From what I understand the Yamaha pump is smaller than the SeaDoo and we always replaced them with the Walbro 255 pump. So, we'll see. I'll kep ya posted.

    I also went with Jim's VX plate. I havent been able to make a good pass since I dont have my wot fueling right but when I did it seemed very nice with one shim up front and none in the back. Jim said the ski looked really good from the shoreline. I did install one shim in the rear of the plate and rode the twisties with it and across some slightly choppy water and did really well.

    I have the same plate and love it. I dont use any shims. I tried 1 shim on the rear bolts and after about 10 hours of offshore abuse I was starting to see the shims making an imprint in the hull, so I decided to take them out. I just use the trim if it ever gets too bouncy, still an awesome plate! Oh and my speedo works fine with the plate as well, it is usually only 2-3mph faster than my gps.

    As I mentioned I thought I had a bad RRFPR so I bought a new Aeromotive 13129 regulator and since the RRFPR had a gauge port I figured I would get rid of the bulky gauge adapter just before the fuel rail. I also decided to take it further and got rid of the 3 different fuel lines, hose clamps, and stock push on fittings at the tank and rail. I replaced everything with the AN -6 fittings, EFI push on fittings, and black nylon braided hose. I also installed the AN -6 fitting in the top of the tank for the return line. Here are some pics.
