    As shown in pic is how I've always had that bottom bushing installed. I got to wonder what pitch would be like if I flipped it around. I tried and all seems to operate normally and the nozzle pitched up a couple degrees. I put a straight edge out the venturi and the nozzle now barely touches so it might not yield any form of trim up type. Anyone ever do this?

    Here's how it's now installed flipped.

    It's a good idea in theory but whatever speed you're gaining from trimming it up that little bit, you're losing by deflecting the spray coming from the nozzle. That's my opinion anyway

    Very True! I did the flip as seen in the pic and tomorrow is the test. It's already a pretty modified 951 that I've gps at 65 before, but not in this heat however which I'm down to 62. I've thought of trying a wedge but after realizing that bushing can be flipped I'm curious to test it and someone out there has had this idea long before this I'm sure. It did not pitch it up that much but enough a straight edge showed the water stream will in fact touch the bottom edge of nozzle slightly and could ad a bit of up trim...we shall see!

    I done it to my 99 gtx limited an it seemed to get up an boogy quicker an it made a very big difference jumping waves . You will notice the change. Also the steering feels more direct an i got 3km more out of it
