Cavitation with Solas 12-18/R&D Grate/ R&D Cone ---- Any Suggestions?
Went from bone stock to:
Solas Anti Cavitation Cone
R&D Intake Grate
I feel like I lost some low end grunt, especially doing full throttle, low speed donuts, etc. It feels a bit sluggish and is cavitating out of the hole. Wonder if the cone is really worth it with the QSTS trim system?
It handles like it is on rails though.

I also have a pump plug kit to install this week. I am betting the R&D is taking in so much water that it is creating cavitation. Would you agree or disagree?

How big of a job was it to replace the impeller? Did you do it yourself?

Yes, I posted the step by step in your thread.

I just spoke with R&D and he also mentioned that I should seal the intake to the hull. Unless I missed that step in the instructions, does this need a bead of silicone around it to properly perform?
