    550sx pump info

    Any advantages to having an ocean pro pump nozzle vs a stock bored out nozzle?

    no. the OP nozzles only allow for larger bore if needed.

    I loved my stock bored out nozzle, but the stock bilge won't suck water out after cutting all the material out. I ended up using some glue to put a copper insert in mine so I could still pull out water while riding... but if you have an aftermarket bilge pump it shouldn't be too big a deal... Id just cap off the old one and maybe use the through hull fitting to set up a dual cooling system?

    Thanks, this was my thinking as well I have my bored nozzle with a small piece of tubing so my stock bilge will work also. Just curios if the aftermarket nozzles made a difference

    Ocean Pro nozzle is pretty large, will gain some low end power. I have a stock bored nozzle and my 550sx runs pretty good. Bigger nozzle = low end. Smaller nozzle = top end.

    If you want to keep the stock set-up epoxy a short piece of 5/16" brass tubing in there. Tubing just needs to stick out into the jet stream 1/4" or so to create low pressure at the end of the tube.
