Hey, how do you like it? I saw one in Havasu last week and it looks big on the water.
Are there any suggestions to increase the speed of my Speedster Wake 430hp...for example, impellar replacements, exhust system,etc.etc. Thanks
How do you like the power? What is your top speed. Do you think the quality is good? How about running in rough water? Love any opinions on the boat!
Try this forum for tips. I am sure you can run any mods the RXPs are running, but it will just cost you double with twins.
Oh, and look into getting your supercharger washers swapped out so you don't have any motor problems.

Could you give me more information on the supercharger washers swapping? What is that and what advantage will I gain by swapping them out with what?

Don, if your 230 is a 2007 you currently have the 2nd generation ceramic washers. The current washers are moly coated steel (generation 4) and are much less prone to fracture particularly in a specific use boat like the WAKE. The replacement interval is scheduled at 200 hours and typically costs $550 to $600. You will need to keep engine time on your own as your ECU does not record the washer replacement interval like the personal watercraft. The ceramics work fine and will last a long time but must be replaced IMMEDIATLY if you notice a loss of rpm. You can check the torque of any supercharger clutch by removing the outgoing air supply hose and making sure the torque value is above 70 in/lbs. on the nut where the fan mounts.
