    Butter's '14 FX SVHO

    Hey guys had this over a year and didn't even start the engine yet. I tried to deal with the reliability issues, performance enhancements and the sound system all at the same time. The stock stator only puts out 25 amps. And 10 of that goes to the fuel pump. So to prevent a lean burn down, I added a 190 amp water cooled alternator from a 2014 Audi R8. I put a freewheeling clutch and all stainless hardware and mount

    So on here are two Polk Audio 6.5, two Polk Audio 8" and a Polk SR124dvc 12" subwoofer. All marine rated speakers. Driving the 6 & 8's is a 6 channel marine MB Quart amp. And powering the 12 is a MB Quart OA2050 2000 watt amp.

    Head unit is a Polk Audio Bluetooth, waterproof receiver. I have a volt and amp meter to measure output of the alternator. The other gauges measure inlet and outlet of the intercooler. And there is an AEM Failsafe boost/afr gauge. The gauges show better than the camera took. Sorry for the pictures being wack. I did all of this from my phone.

    WOW!! That is some ingenuity! Looks killer. Let us know how it works.
    Who did all of the molding? Maybe they or you can make some mirror delete pods for that ski? I have a 2014 and want to delete the mirrors.

    Thanks. With the lines that our skis have, it might look a little funky up close when you totally eliminate the mirrors. I've seen pics of a race ski but it was pretty far away. Maybe a partial delete with gauges.
