skat magnum pump?
looking at getting a skat pump!
but, since i tried the 160mm liner and prop this summer and lost rpms and speed.
i am looking at getting a 155mm magnum pump with 8 veins.
has anyone tried this approach?
my oem pump has 2 blown out veins and holding.

Hi there buddy,
I'm on the same position. I want to learn more about these magnum pumps and if it eliminates cavitation all together? Any feed back is appreciated, Julio...

but, i do not know if you will still have the pump errosion problem with the tbm cone.
i would love to try one before i buy it! since tbm is like 45 minutes from where i live, i could go to there shop and get some direct info.
the other issue i have heard of is the spacer issue. since i use a skat prop.
and at 500.00 a pop. i could get the skat pump with a new prop for almost twice that.
then there is the seadoo conversion which i am also open too.

I am having a lot of success with my Seadoo pump set-up that I made for my SHO. I started with same pump set-up I am using on my GPR-SHO. I then made some improvements / changes that gave me an extra 1.5 mph. This same set-up could be used on a FZR.
I remain convinced the Seadoo pump is a better designed pump than the Yamaha OEM pump. (larger diameter, more veins, large inner hub and larger pump cone) Even when compared to the Skat pump the Seadoo pump has a larger inner hub and larger pump cone. As the TBM product illustrates, these pumps work better with a larger inner hub and larger cone because this raises the pump pressure.
Also, in your first post you mentioned a Skat 8 vein pump. if you want to use a Skat you might consider the 12 or 14 vein instead. My experience is the 12/14 vein pumps are just as fast and offer improved hook-up over a 6 or 8 vein pump. Comparing 2 pumps back to back with the same impeller, my 155mm 14 vein skat setback pump was just as fast as my 6 vein Yamaha pump. The difference with the Skat was improved hook-up and acceleration. Rocketman recently posted he had similar results (actually in his case his Skat 14 vein pump was slightly faster).

The 14 vein pumps cost a TON more than an 8 vein.
I would consider Phillip's Doo pump conversion before a 3k+ 14 vein pump.
