    not so much the transplanting but it will not handle the power like a bigger pump will... find the larger pump...

    JMO,
    Having owned several high HP 800 motors (or derivatives there of) and having run 144, 148 and 155mm pumps, the 144mm pump will effectively move the waveventure with the 1100 motor. You will not see the bottom end response that you would with the 155mm pump but you might net a few tenths on the top end vs the 155mm. Finding the right pitch for the impeller is probably going to be your biggest obstacle. Think of the water flowing through the pump like you would a couple of different size hoses, bigger dia hose flows more water less pressure, smaller dia hose will flow slightly less water but more pressure given the same initial inlet pressure.

    14/19, 14/18....depends on whether you're going Skat-trak or Solas or something else....I'd contact somebody like Dave at Impros and tell him what you've got....he's pretty good at getting you lined out.
