Parts/Kit Overview

The R&D Sea-Doo GTX 4Tec 185 H.P. Supercharged Performer Kit was developed and tested to significantly increase top speed performance while eliminating impeller/pump cavitation that leads to the constant and annoying hitting of the RPM limiter in rough water conditions. The R&D GTX S.C. Performer kit delivers a great increase in handling and stability while boosting low and mid-range acceleration and adding a noticeable increase in top speed performance and stability. The cavitation and RPM limiter condition has been eliminated, which will lead to a higher degree of reliability. The R&D Performer kit is very easy to install and each part in the Performer kit can be used individually as a “stand alone” product. With the R&D Sea-Doo GTX 4Tec supercharged Performer kit you can expect to receive a noticeable performance gain, with great reliability, at a very affordable price! The R&D Sea-Doo GTX 4Tec Performer Kit was developed for 2003 and 2004 GTX 4Tec models with the 185 H.P. engine.

  • The R&D GTX 4Tec Aquavein Intake Grate Kit will keep your Sea-Doo GTX’s pump loaded and hooked up to improve handling and top speed performance. Improved straight-line stability and smoother, tighter turning capabilities will be noticed instantly! Also, there is zero speed loss with the R&D Aquavein Grate. In fact, speed improvements in flat and rough water have been noted.

  • The R&D 2.5 degree pump reduction nozzle wedge kit was developed to wedge the reduction nozzle up 2.5 degrees on the Sea-Doo GTX supercharged models to reduce hunting or bow searching at top speeds. The R&D pump wedge kit will increase straight-line stability and will add a 1-1.5 mph top speed gain! The R&D 2.5 degree reduction nozzle wedge kit works excellent with the Sea-Doo GTX 2-position adjustable steering nozzle, allowing either a preferred 87.5 or 85 degree steering nozzle angle setting.

  • The R&D “supercharger” Filter Kit was designed and developed exclusively for the new Sea-Doo 4Tec 185 H.P. supercharged model. The R&D filter kit will unleash restricted horsepower trapped in the O.E.M. air filtration system and intake ducting. The new R&D filter kit will sound good, look great, and will add 100 plus peak RPM’s to your tachometer reading, which will add 1-1.5 mph to your top speed performance.

  • The new R&D Pump Cone Spacer Kit is an inexpensive and creative way to extend the pump cones length, which will reduce engine rpm’s while adding additional pump thrust. Spacing the pump cone will add to top speed while keeping the engine rpm’s out of the rev limiter!

  • The R&D O.P.A.S. Removal Kit was developed for closed course, and off-shore competition to improve turning, rough water handling, and top speed.

  • The new R&D/Solas 12/20 Impeller Option has a sleeker 4-blade design, with a superior high performing polished finish. Performance gains include reduced cavitation, increased acceleration and a 1-2 mph top speed improvement.

NOTE: The 2003 GTX 4Tec has a plastic pump/stator housing with a stainless steel pump support bracket. The 2003 GTX 4Tec S.C. model will require the use of Part # 143-95002 2.5 degree wedge kit. The 2004 GTX 4Tec has an aluminum pump/stator housing, and will require Part # 143-95004 2.5 degree wedge kit.

NOTE: For performer kit applications where the O.E.M. impeller is desired to be used, along with the R&D 2.5 degree wedge kit, and R&D high-performance air filter kit, R&D recommends the installation of the longer R&D Pump Cone Spacer Kit, which will keep the engine rpm’s at 7500-7550, and peak speeds at approximately 66-67 mph. The longer of the two pump cone spacer kits offered by R&D is Part # 163-95350.

NOTE: The Sea-Doo GTX 4Tec supercharged performer kit development, tachometer, and top speed information posted was gathered after an initial 5-mile warm-up to stabilize engine temperatures. All testing was performed exclusively with Chevron 91 octane pump gasoline at 500 feet above sea level. Ambient air temperature during testing in May 2003 was between 90 and 110 degrees. These test results may change as we continue to gather data, and monitor O.E.M. stock boat speed averages, and production impeller consistencies. The information posted in the R&D Performer Kit is an average. In many cases we hear of feedback from Sea-Doo owners with performer kit packages reporting of higher speeds than posted.
