I know ZERO about jets. I know a little about Smart Tabs. (Trim tabs) if that is what you are asking about.

I guess if I were going to build my own ( I won't)...I'd just look at their website and take down the suggested sizes for various boats and horsepowers.

When I bought my first pair, I screwed up on the size of the gas struts. They (Nauticus)... the manufacturer swapped them out for me at no cost.

You could try some weight up front to cut down on the porposing.

I made everything out of aluminum on mine boat. 1/4 throttle almost 30mph Im so close to getting it right I wanna know how it will go. I want to whole build thread on my boat sence it's my frist time and not know if it even work I was going to wait intill I had it right. I dI'd want to point other in the wrong way
