    09 rxt upgrades? Which impeller to go with.

    I have a 09 rxt and will be rebuilding the pump(just pulled it last night). Impeller in it is chewed up and wear ring is the same. So looking for input on which impeller to go with and why. I'm looking to get more top end speed. Also any other upgrades I should do and benefits of the upgrade. Any info is greatly appreciated.

    Would this be a good choice, Solas Impeller SRX-CD-13/18? I'd be looking to change our the air cleaning setup to a more flowing setup

    To increase top end speed...you need a taller prop. To turn a taller prop you need more ponies. Air intake....boost....fuel....all part of the equation. Like the formula for fire.....without one of the three necessary parts...you don't get flame. One or more parts outa balance...no or weak fire.

    Simply going from a stock impeller to a solas one will typically give you some/better acceleration and top speed.

    Any recommendations on which prop I should go with? I'd like to get all ordered this week. My pump is shot so I want to re build it.

    For an RXT 215 with an air intake (stage 1 mods) you will want the below 14/19 impeller. Don't forget to use the discount code: greenhulk when completing the checkout process in the forums store. It will save you some $$$

    Also, replace the wear ring with a new impeller. Your options are the stock plastic wear ring, but I recommend the stainless steel wear ring. More info on stainless steel wear rings by clicking here

    The parts to rebuild your pump can be found by clicking here

    Hope that helps!

    Would that be to big of a pitch for a stock engine? Should I go with a 13/18 or is just opening up the air intake enough for a 14/19m

    The 13/18 is an SRX impeller and is for the 2008 and older stock 215 hp skis. For your 2009 215 with an air intake you will want to go with the 14/19A impeller
