    What impeller and intake grate?

    I am new to jet ski's but understand machanics descently. I have a 97 GTX i got with 60 hours on it. It runs descent but I want to do a grate and impeller. The max RPM are about 6800 just over if perfect conditions (only 40 rpm). What is a good intake grate and impeller? Both options if anyone knows for better low-end to midrange or better top end? Or if I can get an impeller that will do both? Thanks for all the help

    can't really get an impeller to do both or we'd all be happy.

    As a previous long term 96GTX owner, an intake grate is a waste on the 3 seater.

    I would reccommend the skat trak 17-22 impeller.

    Some suggest the Solas XO prop, but it's very simular to the OEM prop and the diff won't be much.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Just for curiosity, which degree number means which? Lowend or top end? Like 17-22 will do which for me as stock is 17-25?

    On the left side look at the FAQ and the impeller 101 tech section, as all manufactures size their impellers differently.

    the OEM 17/25 is a slightly different design prop than the skat 17-22, different hub angels etc.

    just bending a 17-25 OEM prop down to a 17-22 won't be the same.

    Thanks I read the info. On the website it shows the 17/22 for good bottom to mid range and the 16/25 for top end. How much top end do you loose with the 17/22 and how much low end would you loose with the 16/25? I'm just not sure which way I want to go.

    Where is the shoe that people say to re-seal? I've read some info on here about but don't know where it is. Any help is greatly appriciated. Thanks again
