    "Best" hull/engine/pump combo?

    For my next jetski build I was thinking of putting together a Frankenstein, "sleeper", 2stroke, sitdown.
    Basically, I want to build a 2 stroke ski that accelerates fast, using "the best" parts from different manufacturers.
    (Ex: Seadoo hull with a Kawi engine and a Yamaha pump)
    Thing is, I can't find much information on whats considered to be "the best" in these categories.
    (I did read a little about the Seadoo X4 hull being a good starting point since they are pretty aerodynamic and light.)

    So basically if you were going to build "the best" 2stroke sitdown for acceleration/speed, what combination would you go with?
    It would be cool to just get a list of hulls, engines, and pumps with pros and cons of each.

    No need to force off brand parts into a Seadoo. I agree that the X4 is the answer, stick a 951 in there.

    Really? It seems I hear mostly negative things about seadoo engines, but then again I've never owned one.
    You don't even think a kawi 1100 would be a better option? (Not even sure if it would fit btw, haven't seen an x4 in person)

    Get a lightweight carbon fiber hull that looks extremely similar to an existing "regular" hull (someone else will have to chime in as to what is available for sitdowns since most CF hulls are standups). Put in a Dasa 1200. Paint it just like the regular hull and put on OEM graphics.
