    So took it out yesterday 64 water temp and 80 degrees out. 11.5 WOT throttle. so it did come down with some warmer weather and some humidty. more then I would have thought. but that's means it will be in the 10s when 95. also only pulled 8700-8800 RPMS and 16.8 lbs of boost. vs that first day 18.1 lbs and 9100 rpms. in cold weather (52 degree water, and 63 air temp)


    does that kind of drop in RPM sounds normal? and drop in air fuel?

    as it gets hotter it will run richer and more RPM loss

    But 300 rpm from 10 degrees? I mean at some point it has to stop falling off or a stock one would barley run... I guess I expect it to very to some degree. just like a car, but that's a big percentage ha

    Make sure your oil is not over the mark while engine is flat leveled, Thats a lot of rpms and a lot if afr drop from 10 degrees.

    so double checked oil, removed 4 Oz slowly. its right at the top dot on one side barley over on the other if you flip it. The last 2 inch of the dip stick are off set form some reason.

    Then took it for a ride Saturday. 11.5 WOT on air fuel again pulling 8700-8800 RPMs it was 81 out side, and 64 water temp. IT was full of fuel, and beer/ice and my 240bs on it ha
    Ski ran fine, just not 9100 rpms. when it did that it was 63 outside, and 52 water temp, and little less then 1/2 tank of fuel, and nothing but me on it

    So yesterday, 74 air and 64 water temp.
    3 bars fuel, no beer left.
    Max speed app 89.4mph, and speedtrack app 91mph. average would be 90.2 ….

    that was at 9110 rpms and 17.0 lbs other run in the day was 8980 and 16.7lbs

    The only change I made was swapped the riva water box out for my TDR. and I know that should not make a difference. I still have another Ride plate to try but need it to be summer and warm so I can swap plates and shims around between the 2 at a dead ramp and find the one that does the best. so currently still on Deans plate with his shims.

    was super excited.
