    Anyone running the R&D 160mm impeller housing/prop on an FZ or FX SHO?

    Looking for comments from those running the R&D 160mm impeller housing and prop. Any significant advantages in your opinion over the OEM 155mm?

    Get the riva 160 like I did. It's solid SS all the way through so you never have to worry about it separating like the oem one

    I like the price of the R&D unit and I don't really see a difference between it and the Riva.

    $45 more for a full stainless unit sounds like a no brainer to me...

    Definitely something to consider.

    I have the R&D. No problems so far. Big difference for me was the elimination of cavitation. Make sure to seal your transom plate while your at it.

    I like it I can stand on throttle from a dead stop and it doesn't break loose

    I just have to say your machine is gorgeous. Sorry, couldn't help it. And yeah, how could you go wrong with SS for $45 more? It's worth the investment.
