    2012 fx-sho only doing 63 mph

    I have a 2012 fx-sho with ribbon bypass and riva intake, and lately it will only gps @63.1 with full tank of gas
    rpm's are almost 8k. I did notice the impeller blade facing the nozzle all three of them have a few nick's in the middle of them. I wanted to try and figure out what the problem may be before I do a r3 reflash and install a new Impeller and a b1 or c1 wheel

    Most likely your damaged impeller is the reason for your speed loss! Go ahead with the Mods and you should be ok when you get your new mods dialed in. Tommy Jordan

    Impeller clearance to wear ring could be past service limit

    did you pitch impeller after ribon delete. If you are hitting 8000 rpm you are bouncing of the limiter.

    the limiter on them are anywhere from 7800 to 7880 so if you are seeing 8000 you are on the limiter you can not do a ribon delete with out pitching you will hit the limiter. I pitch them 2 degrees up when doing a ribon delete.
