    RPM?

    Can a bad wear ring cause a 300 rmp drop on my rxp? checked for boost leaks, nothing. I dont know what to do top speed 70.5 stage 2. It is a OEM wear ring with 78 hrs. on the ski and 20 hrs. with stage 2.

    Crawl under the ski and look through the intake grate. Any noticeable damage to the wear ring?

    As for OEM or SS, where you ride is there any debris in the water? If so, I would say go OEM.

    I have pulled the pump and the wear ring has a nice groove in it, I can fit a credit card in the gap. Not much debri here but do you think I wiil be ok with the OEM wear ring with stage 2?

    you will be fine with oem wear ring at your stage 2. in fact i bet most hear are running oem. If you want to go ss then i would reccomend front motor mount and be sure your pump is in good shape.

    OEM will be fine. If you want to, do Shib's wear ring flip...
