Changing you impellers could help as well, although they aren't cheap either. There are many differently pitched impellers on the market, and choosing the correct one is no picnic. The wrong pitch can cause a decrease in performance.
My boat has SkatTrak 14/22 pitch impellers- I have no idea if they were stock or an upgrade by the previous owner so I can't relate whether or not there was a performance increase by doing it. Hope this helps a little. I haven't worried about adding horsepower, only making the most of the 170 HP I already have!

There is not much for $500 or less...... Now this is depending on which model you have and how old. Like tiggerman said.....try checking into some impellars to see if anyone else has done this and what performance they gained.
Just wondering what is the best thing I could do to add a little more hp. Nothing too expensive, say 500 or less. Hopefully there is something. Thanks.
I really think that the best upgrade is to beef up the engine, however you might decide to do that. Trim tabs, impellars.....etc etc ....most of this stuff is already looked at when they build the boats. If you compare how much these upgrades cost to engine upgrades......then factor in the gains....I personally think the engine is where its at....FIRST of course
