make sure its not in child mode that will reduce the power also. Remove the intake and check to see if you can spin the spool on the turbo with your finger, don't use a screw driver! possible that turbo is locked up.

This is what I've done with them. Spray it down with something like deep creep or PB Blaster and let it sit for a bit, then using your finger with a towel over it so you don't cut yourself try to get it to move. Don't use tools on it as this will cause damage to the blades. Just be gental and patient with it and the blades will turn. After that start it up with the intake off, and let it run a min, spraying sea foam on the blades to lube them up, I put sea foam in a spray bottle and fill it up, and then spray the intake down with that, but I do this after every ride just to be safe because I have seen this on many Honda Turbo ski's. Good luck any more questions feel free to ask. Hope it helps.

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.

It wouldn't hurt I would think, just don't get it in the engine! Also I've heard of some guys that put a hair dryer blowing cool or a small fan blowing on the engine area after they spray it down with water, just to keep everything dry and air moving around the engine compartment. Good luck hope it all works out.
