Solas vs. High Altitude impeller
I have a 2004 RXP 215 supercharged operated on a 5,000' altitude lake.
I need to replace my impeller and I'm thinking of either standard high altitude or a Solas SRC CD 14/19.
Which would you choose?
The other option is to recondition the 4 blade impeller that's in there now, but I thought a new one might be nicer.

So your ski is stock?
What impeller is in there now and what rpms?

Bought it used. I have no idea what is in there now. Is there someplace stamped on the impeller that would say what it is?
It was performing very well until some rocks got caught up in there. Not sure what the RPMs were.
I'm leaning towards just reconditioning the existing one. It was working.

Does it look to be a solas (shinny finish) or OEM (un finished grey looking)
If its a solos it should be stamped.

Fix the impeller and find a used 87mm venturi. That will give you a few hundred rpm.
Buy a solas impeller.
Either way, I would make a 4inch intake tube for the supercharger. It's easy, cheap, and will add power.

OEM prop would be my guess without your confirmation of rpm.
I would pick up another OEM prop before fixing that one. Before getting a 13/17 or 14/19 I would confirm rpm.
If your not pulling OEM prop to 8100 then you want pull a 14/19 without being depitched.
