    Default GOOD SETUP FOR 96 SPX?

    Hello everyone, I just bought my seadoo spx (718cc) last year and as yet have not modified anything except for removing the vts system that is a unreliable trim system (switched it to manual trim). I have just winterized it and now and I am starting to think about modifing the motor, impeller, ride plate, grate and so on. I am starting to find out that this seadoo's can be very tempemental, so I was wondering if anyone had a reliable setup that they have used to get more peformance out of the ski. As for the hull it has it 's fair share of nicks and scratchs, but I think I will tackel that next year. Thanks In advance

    Worx Maxiloader Intake Grate : $101.00

    Skat Impeller (pitch depends on if you what results you want) : $211.00

    K&N flame arrestor : $65.00
    Adaptors : $30.00
    ADA Head with 36 cc Domes : $225.00

    What ever you do..dont get sucked in to buying new parts for this boat...there are thousands of used parts out there..just check any race site..if you are looking for motor mods, its the same motor as an HX and ever since the sport class died, they practicaly give the stuff away, and for the handling stuff? Everyone and there brothers are parting out 785 race boats, just find a racer and buy his stuff.
