    OEM RXP wear ring is garbage!

    3 wear rings so far. This is the 3rd ring ( Jeff, 05Limited just sent this a few weeks ago) & the 2nd patch job on it thats been eaten too. Is it the nature of the beast when you're running bigger blades & HP? It's the same spot that gets erroded every time. SS is next I guess. I cavitate
    pretty good out of the hole with a 15/19R, well, all props for that matter since my stage 2 was done so I used the 80mm ring to kill it & kill it it did. Today I ran the 15/19R with an 82mm ring with a S3 wheel & stock IC & I was spinning 8200+ from the hole but would settle down right away & would top out at 8100rpm in the ocean.
    Anyway, that's my story!

    Yea, One big reason I just went to SS rings. The OE rings are garbage for
    or setups.

    Bada-Boom Bada-Bing...Done!

    Is your pump water blasted clean like mine too. I thought it was the heat from the exhaust hitting the pump that made it expand & hit the prop.

    The stainless steel wear ring is the only way to go

    over 40 hours on my SS wear ring without a problem. Shoots everything right out without damage just like my old Yamaha.

    LiquidDI,
    you boat credits say you run a BOV. What are your thoughts on it? Does it make alot of noise when it dumps boost? Why do you still run it when the concensus says ...its not needed with metal SC washers?

    Thanks,
    ---JIm---
