will have to change drive system and 550 should use 15-15.5 prop

ya thats what i thought thank you ya i got the impeller and pump for cheap so i cant complain. i know it will make me lose some low end and gain so top speed but that doesnt bug me for now until i can get a solas 15-15.5 pitch! another question i have is ive read that the 440 pump will rip the throught hll bearing out of the fiberglass, how quick will that happen can i run the stock 440 pump for a little bit??

What do you think your top speed will be on your modded 440?
I will be picking up a 92 550 soon as well.
