    so you'll have to file the last 1 1/2" of the edge of the blade to stop it from binding in the ring.

    I have a 19 GTX 300 with the following upgrades. (Actually hope to be done with the last of them tomorrow)

    IMUK with Intake Girdle
    4" Air filter
    135 SC Wheel
    VT100 injectors
    Upgraded SC hoses with BOV
    Impeller Solar 13/18 but thinking of going back to the stock 13.5/24
    Stainless wear ring

    Deciding on which Riva tune to apply.

    I should be done tomorrow night for a test run with the 13/18 as that is what is on my ski now. After a test run I might swap it to the stock impeller to see how it does Sunday.

    Going to be using Dragy to log the speeds/times.

    But real curious about this new impeller.
    Its a 159 prop, id be more concerned with dialing in your tune via datalogging than measuring how fast you can accelerate before you melt a piston.

    I will be data logging as well. Then discussing with Jesus if something is off.

    Just too many times we add things and have no idea what the actual gain was. So I just want to know.

    Do it the correct way...send it to Skat. The impeller will be "blueprinted".

    Would going from a 161 pump to a 159 cause the pump to stuff easier

    Do you realize the stator section of the 300 pump is already 159mm?

    Just curious, Can Skat replicate this godsend 15/25 impeller? With all those Solas impellers blowing up I’m a little worried about quality vs speed.

    Yep you're right......I would think that as long as you didn't squeeze the nozzle diameter down below 83mm you should be ok at least to 85-86 mph without having to worry about stuffing it dont ya think? Maybe even step up to an 84mm nozzle would be better
