    Issues with solas prop maybe help?

    So i completely replaced and rebuilt my pump. i replaced everything with new. from axle shaft to housing. I put a solas concord 17/29 impeller in there but i dont know if i like it or not. It pulls hard low end. It will yank the ski out of the water and on plane hard but seems to hit rev limiter easily is that normal. Also Seems to hit hard and top out easy and i loose boost from hitting rev cut. i think thats normal too. Anyone else dislike the 17/29 prop ?

    I love mine. Did you check the impeller to stator clearance.

    I lost a little top end also but was hell of a lot more fun getting there.

    Chaos . this is on a 12x isn't it ? Sounds like the 29 isn't no where near 29deg u sure its not a prop for a 12 non turbo?
    Think they r like a 14/19 or something like that .
    The 14 is Ur launch but the 20+- is Ur top end .
    A stock ski with a 17/29 solus does have more punch but about same top end .
    I had one but repitched it many times to find the desired pitch I was looking for withy upgrades. (14/31 actual pitch not advertized pitch)

    no the non turbo pump is not the same as the turbo pump. But i think it was just the water. I toped out at 61.6 mph according to gps. I only have a solas 17/29 and a h20 extreme open exhaust. I think it was just a little goofy then. But it rides hard. only bummer is i fouled a plug today. They needed to be replaced anyways. Ive just been slacking on ordering them. Found them for 50 shipped for 4 on ebay. runs rough around 1-2500k but when im on it runs fine. but when close to idle it will miss.

    I dont know if i want to get the macboost module and an intercooler. I just dont know if i want to do anything else. I think its fast enough and reliable enough. I dont want to break anything. Its a fun ski.

    all R models have the same pump, turbo or non-turbo. The prop is different between them.

    Later, 05 and up F non turbos have a smaller diameter solas pump and solas prop from the factory. you could have a non turbo prop in your r.

    I dont have a R I have a F-12x and the pumps are different. The non turbo according to the manual is a bigger diameter pump

    no, 03-04 na f models and all r na models use the same pump as all turbos.
    05+ f na use a solas pump and the diameter is smaller.
