A stock VX should run around 52 mph with a single rider. You can throw on all the mods out there, but I don't think you will get more than a 4-5 mph increase over that number. 10 mph increase with a VX is going to be difficult to achieve no matter what you do to it. I don't know about the air intake mod. Check speed with a gps, cause the speed-o on the ski will not be accurate.

Haven't added anything to my ski, but I'm considering intake grate, ride plate, and sponsons for better handling. My FX HO is already plenty fast for me.

No supercharger on a VX. Top speed should be around 52 mph on a stock VX. R & D Performance offers a performance package that they claim will get the VX up to 58 mph, but I'd say that is optimistic: R&D - Performance Kits - Yamaha - VX-110 - Performer Kit
RIVA Motorsports offers a package that claims to give you 55 mph which is probably a more accurate number with their kit: RIVA VX RPM Kit

The VX is sort of the "Honda Accord" of jet skis: reliable, great gas mileage, stable, easy to maintain, but not real fast.
My recommendation is to enjoy your VX as is, save your money and trade it in later on for a faster ski if you want more speed (Yamaha FZR/FZS for example). Remember speed comes at a price: higher price ski, more maintenance worries, plus you will be spending lots more time at the gas pump.
