They recommend about 8" of water. Mine's in about 7 1/2".
There's a few pics in my 125 build thread.

would running it a bit deeper than that hurt performance? I think mine would sit at about 10 inches, I could raise it up some, but that would be less room for cleaning under stand.

10" should be fine. Try not to go any deeper tho.
You plan on doing any mods to it?

There are a few pretty easy mods that will dramatically boost performance, even tho it works fine without doing anything to it.
I did pretty much everything on this mod thread from RC.
