I would recommend PowerSlot in a 190/197 as well. I regularly ski behind a friend’s 05 197 with 310 RTP ‘aka Predator’ 1:1 and it’s a dog. We ski on a small public lake, so there is room to get up to speed for the course. But when/if I get an 01+ 190/197 it will defiantly have a larger motor and PowerSlot. One advantage of the LQ9 the closed cooling for spring/fall skiing when temps might dip below freezing. Good luck in your search.
Currently Boatless, searching for next boat SN 196...?
