    that impeller will be fine (woody nujet now offer a large hub impeller)

    to help with the porpoising shim the trim tabs down, 2 washers under all 8 mounting bolts

    thing is..i thought you'd only need to shim the stock ones to cure porpoising i though with the riva's extended length it would not need any shimming..but i guess i'll have to do that thanks guys..
