So I ordered my Vtech Tuner just now. Hope to have it Friday. Really hated to spend that kind of cash on it, but I did.

I am going to tune one of my two 60HP 2Ups for now and see how I like it.

Oh, you'll like it, you'll like it a lot. ;)

Yep, my phone sent this...

Let us know how you like it. I wonder how much of a difference it would make on my 90hp model

I'd like to know what "options" or different types of tunes are available, last thing I'd want would be too much RPM or too lean/too much advance for just a couple more HP. Yet the ability to get 90-100HP sounds inviting if it's in the right power range.

Just so you know, vtech has had this motor running 9900 rpm's and at 20 lbs of boost and still no issues with it. It is a stout little motor. Plus, with the tune, you get 109 hp.

Might be time to turn up the boost, see how much more this beast can take, but of course what we all fear is something messing up and costing us big.

On their turbo setup, they are only using 6 lbs of boost to get 140 hp. :) If I only had the money :p

In stead of turning up the boost I'd rather them beat the sh! T out of it at 6 psi for months. The. I'll be sold. But to turn it up to 20 psi and last a few hours doesn't prove anything to me. Same thing with the car scene

Keep in mind though it was found that the Spark is actually performing better with lower revs. ITs not simply just about MOAR RPM's you have to consider where the engine is making its power in the range.

I believe your way of thinking is wrong. The higher the RPM'S, the faster the impeller spins, therfore the faster your ski. The reason why the solas is faster at a lower RPM is due to the pitch. If you add the vtech tune you will gain power, which will gain you rpm, which will gain you speed. How much, I don't know. The stock impeller is balanced, hp-rpm's-rpm limiter. Look up impeller pitching at that other forum, GH.

So I got my tuner today. I went ahead and placed an order for the tuning credit so I could tune this weekend, figured it would be an automated process. No such luck. Then I realize they are in Sweden and it's 11 pm. Maybe they are open or will respond to my email tomorrow :( bummer

Finally, Was able to get the tune ordered properly and one of my sparks is now tuned with the Beta 402 tune. Cant wait to try it tomorrow.

It was nice to see the touring mode / Sport mode.

As I read something somewhere else, is there a tune that turns off touring mode ? or starts in sport mode?

WOW is all I can say. I can believe this will be a huge difference from 60 to 100+... I started my stock 60HP stock and Rev'd it once, then started my tuned spark and rev'd it once and I thought the motor was going to shoot out the pump. Major difference.

Cannot wait to get it on the water tomorrow. Taking my cousin out, going to leave him in the dust and not tell him I tuned one of them ;-)

Impeller, Intake Grate, Exhaust, and Air intake coming soon.

So I went to the water today. Two places actually Icw and river and all I can say is amazing. If you have a 60hp, do the tune. I thought the thing was going to rip my arms off.

I would say I need some trim tabs or a lead brick in the front of it. Lol, felt like a dolphin out there.

No I'm not, still stock. Next month I plan on doing impeller, intake grate, intake, exhaust. Unless I can get my hands on some R&D trim tabs, which they advertise on their site in the package but don't see them by themselves
