    160

    155 to 160 liner

    Is it possible to bore a stock 155 mm liner out to a 160 or bigger? I have a extra one laying around and won't to try it if it's possible?

    Yes, I know Impros does them and I think there are several other companies that will do this.

    Not sure if you mean boring and resleeving or just boring. I would think just boring would not be a great choice for a saltwater boat, the older GPRs had issues with corrosion between the aluminum housing the the stainless liner causing a bubble and wear point. I believe a contributor was thinness of the liner.

    I don't think they bore out to 160mm. They have to bore it out past 160mm and press in a stainless liner. At least that's how mine came back to me. But yes it can be done to the stock housing. Just hit 100 hours on mine and love it, won't go back. Just be prepared to run a lot less pitch on 160mm impeller compared to 155. I'd start around 4 degrees like lower.

    Yea I think skat also punches out past 160 and puts in a 160mm sleeve for you. If you do a search you should find it.
