    Stainless Steel Ring

    Maybe this is a stupid question but I have to ask. Does the SS Ring wears out the prop over time and causes to loose RPMs at high speeds over time?.........

    I recently put a SS Ring on my stage3, about 15 hrs ago. It was running good before with no issues then I starting loosing RPMs aT WOT about 500-600 RPMs and top speed. I have a new clutch on my S/P. I have check for boost leak everywhere, NO leaks found, the only thing I can think of is the SS Ring. How do I know that the prop is wearing out?

    Yep the prop wears on the edges. You can have it repaired though for about $100.

    my guess

    My guess is that for that to happen would take quite a while. Many people run one and you don't hear about it often. I do trust Fizzle on this, but I would like to know how long would it take before the damage is significant.

    I hear often the pros of running a SS ring outweight the cons.

    even the most outragous amount of wear on the impeller won't cause a 500-600 RPM drop.

    I would start looking elsewhere for your issue.
