    IMO, classic boost leak symptoms.

    Boost gauge (while running @ speed) would tell you a lot.

    What is the best way to measure the boost? I will give it a try at this point. Thanks

    I think they are trying. In all fairness it runs fine, just slow and the techs say there are no codes. I have heard that Sea Doo doesn't pay for diagnostic time under warranty, not sure if that is true or not. If they dont pay for diagnostic time and it takes hours to diagnose, someone has to eat it.

    You're in a tough spot. Shops are loaded with work and need to turn jobs quickly. Unfortunately is sounds like you have a very difficult case to figure out. Since the ski is brand new I would suspect a boost leak, like mentioned already. This could be resolved with a simple check of all the clamps on the intake system. In the case of my RXT I'm going to pay my indy by the hour to try and figure out the cause of my power loss.
