Finding a decent jet ski shop you trust is tough enough, but finding a jet ski tuner/builder who can not only keep you up and running all season long but safely and smartly increase your runabout’s performance is almost impossible. While we in the States are waiting for the snow to melt, our Australian friends are in the midst of prime riding season. That is why it is so critical that shops like Melbourne, Australia’s Diptech Performance are around.
Offering some of the best service and skills necessary to install and test performance kits for supercharged 260-horsepower Sea-Doos, Diptech is regularly ramping up these Rotax-powered runabouts to a solid 300-horsepower (and considering that Sea-Doo’s notoriously dyno well below the advertised 260HP mark, that’s a considerable feat).
Their performance kits consist of RIVA Racing’s a reflashed ECU, an open-element cold air intake, through-hull exhaust with a high-flow waterbox, bigger injectors, valve spring retainers, and boost-boosting supercharger rebuild kit. Of course, big power doesn’t come cheap, as these kits start at $4,000 and up. And if you’re looking to get all that new found power to hook up, you’ll need one of Diptech’s specially-ordered Solas props.
As you can imagine, Diptech is busy with a few of these Sea-Doo installations, but there’s always room for one more! And if you’re looking to improve the ride and comfort (as well as add a radical new look), owner/operator Anthony DiPietro reminded The Watercraft Journal that Diptech is Australia’s number one supplier for Jet Trim seat covers and a major retailer of Jet Pilot products!
