torn between impellers on my rxp
i really didnt want to start a new thread on this topic but i have researched for hours (probably days now) and still am getting alot of mixed opinions and thoughts. I have a bone stock 06 rxp with a wear ring that needs to be replaced and thought it would be a good time to change that and the impeller as well. I would like to wake the ski up a little bit with a front cold air intake and 14/19 prop but really do not want to get into re-pitching props if i dont get the results im thinking of. Am i better off just staying stock and going with a solas 13/18 prop which is recommended for a stock ski?

Have you had experience with this set up?

13/18 is a direct replacement...14/19 requires a little more power, which the stock air intake can not deliver. Upgrade to a cold air intake will help that...If you are still down on RPM's, its just a tweek to the trailing edges of the blades....no biggie.

14/19 would be a good start i defintely would not waste any money keeping the stock pitch. You could even tweak the stock prop a bit if you want to save some loot and not buy a whole new impeller.

If you don't already have an impeller tool here is a cheap one
and here's the wear ring you will need

awesome, i really appreciate you guys helping me make up my mind. I have a wanted add in the greenhulk marketplace for these used parts but looks like i will have to go new. I really want the 4" fizzle intake but i (and my wallet) dont like the fact that i would need a catch can, where the riva power filter has a spot for the crank vent hose. I have seen the home made catch can but would rather not have one at all. Has anyone put a spot on a fizzle intake for the vent?

Don't want to hijack your thread, but since I think you got your answer, what pitch would you guys recommend on a 06 RXP running an X-charger with 42's and maybe a CAI? Im thinking with a 14/19, my buddy might be all over the limiter.
