    Revised Solas impeller reliable or repitch stock prop? Wear ring material?

    I have a RXP 300 with the Riva Stage 2 kit and am still running the stock prop. I am hoping for greater hole shot and top speed/RPM (Current 78.4 GPS @ 8220 RPM on a cool day).

    Speaking to Riva, they have sold over 300 of the revised Solas SXX-CD-13/18 model props with no breakage. Should I go with the Solas or have my stock prop worked on by Impros? Also, should I go with plastic or stainless for the wear ring? Thanks in advance!

    IMHO just stick with plastic. If you ever were to get corrosion build up between the stainless wear ring and the pump, it would cause the wear ring to create a bump that your impeller would wear on. Then you would need to get the stainless wear ring out to replace it which is an absolute nightmare, and you would need a new impeller. Also, I think you should just get the factory impeller repitched. I still don't trust the Solas 13/18, The blades are very thin. These are just my opinions.

    For sure
    Rear air, manifold mod and girdle, xx charger, injectors, rrfpr(not needed),Fizzle cooler, Riva cam and springs and an ultimate DashPac for logging. I see 86/87 when running on empty which I think is OK as I'm in salt and on a RXP.
