As far as props go it depends on your goals. With your level of mods the dynafly will work well if you pitch up the leading edge a couple degrees. Are you looking to maximize launch or top speed? The skat will hook up and accelerate better but will give up about 1 mph up top.

If you can wait I would get the Riva stainless grate. It is not due to ship until the first of June though last I heard. TBM makes an adjustable grate. I do not have any experience with it so I can not tell you how it performs.
As far as impeller I would think whatever RIVA is giving on there Stage 1 kit would work for you.

i am very much interested in the stainless riva grate and can wait but impeller wise..i do more wave jumping than anything else but i dont want to loose my mile per hour...pretty much i want to drift away from stock but mantain my current top speed....i seen a few people had a dyna fly 13/25...think thats to much for me?

I wouldn't wait if you plan on riding. Pump overstuff is not good and can happen tossing you off the ski. I wouldn't ride without it. Just get the Riva or R&D now and play it safe.

To clarify my previous post, I meant that the intake grate may cost you a little speed but at a great benefit to acceleration, handling, and safety. Since you do a lot of wave jumping I would recommend the skat prop. You will still gain performance at all speeds and probably gain speed up top, just a little less than you would with a dynafly(up top).

Just some food for thought. This was done on a completely stock ski like yours. This guy won't be riding for a while. I say that it is better safe than sorry. It only takes one overstuff to do some serious damage to yourself.
