    GP1800 parts before the ski crazyness?

    Anybody else crazy enough to be buying parts before they take delivery of the ski?
    What you getting and hoping to do with the ski?

    I won't be receiving my machine till spring 2017 in Canada but I already have my MaptunerX. I want to purchase the intake, Cooling upgrade and ribbon delete but I need to wait and see what RPM's I will be running with the tune. The lake I will be riding never really warms up so I don't want to find out I'm pulling to many RPM past my comfort zone. I don't want to find out that I'm hitting 8300-8400 RPM before any mods just running a tune. I really don't want to go into the engine on a brand new machine to put the valve retainers in.

    13/18 Solas along with Lucky 13 SVHO cone is the hot ticket!

    Bigger Prop as in the Solas 13/18 or 13/20? Does the Lucky 13 Cone require a bigger nozzle? I'm not sure what the lucky 13 cone does? I assume it adjusts the pumps efficiency giving more thrust?

    Thanks Again

    For a reflashed ski you want the 13/18 impeller.
    Stock skis or a ski with only an SCOM you would want the 13/20

    The Lucky 13 adjustable cone improves the pumps efficiency giving the ski better performance all around. It gets rid of cavitation, improves acceleration and adds top speed. It comes with different sized spacers which allow you to adjust RPM up, or down. Most guys, including myself, found that an 86 mm nozzle and 91 mm steering nozzle work best with the cone. It's very easy to open up your nozzles slightly with an 80 grit flapper sander on a drill.
