    Wanting to upgrade 98' SLTX 1050 where do I start? Best upgrades for the money?

    Hi Everyone,

    Im new to green hulk but i'm big into Polaris skis. I have a 98' SLTX im thinking about doing some upgrades on...I built the motor from the ground up this summer. I bought it with a broken middle rod which trashed the block so I had to get a different block and crank, whole new STD top end, and some good jugs i had in the garage. Motor runs great now that I have a few hours on it but I'm wishing i would have put a 1200 in it but oh well.

    This ski isn't slow by any means but I have a some friends I ride with who have a little newer stuff mainly a built Kawi 150 Ultra, 02' Sea Doo RXDI 951 and a guy with two former Performance East 785 Pro race skis that just blow me away . Now I know i'm comparing apples to oranges but if there are any worth wile upgrades I can make id be interested in doing them. I also don't want to spend a arm and a leg.

    Right now it has a Ocean Pro ride plate but otherwise I think its mostly stock and in pretty nice shape.

    Thanks for the input...also if this is a road that has been gone down many times just point me to the right thread.

    Thank you,

    Andy

    im not sure whats best but im trying things this season with my 1050...my buddy bought a 1200 so i need to get as close to it as i can. Ive heard they arent that far apart.

    I have to go on so far...ocean pro r plate...ocean pro vortec flame arrestors....stainless 6 vane stator..hot seat waterbox...gonna redo the prop as well.

    Then im looking at having domes made

    My buddy has a set of triple pipes for a 98 sltx he's looking to sell along with some other go fast parts...it woke his ski up quite well and I loved riding his ski which made me hunt down a pro785
