    I just bought a VXR 2016 white and red, what's your top speed on yours rxp127??? I really tought the VXR was gonna be way faster than what it is. I wish I would of bought an FX SVHO... Is it worth it modding? or should I buy a supercharged model? I really bought the VXR to prevent the headache of supercharger problems but they advertise it as supercharged fast but it really isn't in my opinion, compared to my previous ski's seadoo RXT 215 and RXT-X 260. It doesn't feel like it does 1.8 sec 0-30mph.

    Here's what most of the VXR guys are running.

    R&D R3 VXR reflash (extremely good tune)
    http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...oducts_id=2335

    You want to use this impeller with the above reflash
    http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...oducts_id=1830

    This is the best air intake

    Hope that helps!

    What other mods can I do to my VXR 2016 besides those 3 mods you just mentioned? Green Hulk can you post the links of the other mods. I would like to build my VXR to keep up with supercharged skis but at the same time keep the ski reliable. I have a couple buddies that just bought supercharged skis FZR's and RXT's 260 and FX SHO. I would like to surprise them next time we race. Is it worth modding the VXR ?? what kind of acceleration and top speed improvements can I expect ?

    There is also this rear exhaust available for the 2015+ VXR's
    http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...oducts_id=3742

    and this exhaust waterbox
    http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...oducts_id=1746

    Unfortunately no ride plate or grate available for the 2015 yet, but Jim has this modification to the stock plate
    http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...oducts_id=1409

    The fastest naturally aspirated VXR that I heard of was 75 mph. He was also using that R&D R3 reflash. Hope that helps!

    Whats the difference between these two, because I don't want the ski to be loud. Do I need one to use the other? also is the waterbox necessary? some users say for N/A applications there isn't noticeable gains in performance is it true?

    ohh and for the RD3 reflash do I need springs and retainers since it's increasing the revs?

    The free flow kit doesn't fit the 2015's, only that rear exhaust does. If you want it as quiet as possible then keep the stock waterbox.

    springs and retainers are not needed with the R&D R3 VXR reflash

    Green Hulk, I was considering adding a 2016 VXR to my PWC collection as well but I also own a bone stock 2015 FX Cruiser HO that is already noticeably faster than other FX HOs that I have ridden/ raced (I have no idea why it is faster) Anyway, since the 2016 VXR and 2015 FX HOs have the same motor, what basic hop up options that work well on the 2015 FX Cruiser HO? Looking for options I can install myself without excessive blood, sweat & tears.

    Thanks Green Hulk,
    which of those mods would have the most positive impact on acceleration and top speed (top 3 or 4). Which are easiest, quickest to install
