    2001 GTI Impeller Confusion

    Hello all. Over the winter I am going to change the impeller and wear ring on my sons 2001 GTI 717. It has a very strong fresh rebuild in it. It has plenty of bottom end, I would like to get a little more top end speed out of it.

    What I see for stock pitch is 9/20. All I see for Solas is 10/16. The Solas should be less top end speed, correct?

    Is there any other options?

    Any opinions?

    Thanks for any time you can spend helping out!!

    OE stock pitch numbers cannot always be compared. Hub design, blade over lap, Blade thickness etc all come into play. Not to mention manufactures numbers do not always match what they "say" their impellers are.

    Go with the manufactures recommendation for your impeller. IE whatever Solas recommends for your ski if you purchase a Solas, Skat Trak for Skat, Nu-Jet for Nu-Jet, etc. It will be fine.

    Reviving this thread.....

    What do you think about an intake grate? Would the Solas help, or is it a waste of money for the GTI?

    Thanks!
