Hi, just looking for information that may lead into a solution to resolve my issue with my Aquatrax F12X Turbo. I took it out to the Isle Morada (florida Keys) and when I took off the response was very slow (10-13 mph) with throttle pulled to the max, then jumped into 25mph and it was just that...wouldn't go over that at all.

I have researched in this forum looking for close answers and got really good tips to work on it this upcoming weekend. I have checked the spark plugs, oil level and cooling system and those areas are fine and in good shape. Any ideas??

Thanks for the help!!

Thanks for the reply "glockm22". I removed the center tube connecting to the Turbo with the air filter casing. The Turbo is clearly stuck...blades wont spin at all. What else can I do...could I use some source of lubricant to loose it up?

Thanks

NOTE: I spray sea foam into the intake right on the blades as the engine is running so that it sucks the sea foam into the engine and helps to also clean away any carbon build up in the wastegate , do this as your flushing out the ski at the end of the day before you put away for the week or after every ride on the weekends.
Many thanks!!! I shall be doing this today right after coming home from work. Also, would it be good if i spray Salt-Away on the engine compartment area (inside the hull). I can see a slight film of salt on the bottom of the Hull area where the engine mounts are.. I rather do that to prevent rust building up on the bottom.:confused:

Thanks

Ok!!! good news, turbo blades are now spinning!! I decided to buy salt-off and flush the coolong system and designated areas again with it. It's responce is far better than before. Just need to test it this weekend... Hopefully this is the only thing and that no other cause breaks the ski.. What I did was to spray blaster lubricant on the center of the blades and gently ( after 1 hr ) the blades started to move. I turned the engine on for a minute and voala!!. Immediately after that I connected the water hose to the back with a salt-off adapter and it's liquid solution to flush it while watching the blades move without restriction.
