    Default loader grate recommedations

    We have a Tarva ( elimiator ) 18 foot with balanced and blueprinted pump and a diverter - running as stock grate - boat has dyno'e motor at 550 and was still climbing ( hyd roller cam stopped at 6,000) . boat used as a lake rocket river cruiser and an ocational skier or tubber -

    Im running an A/B stainless at 6100 no cav at all and with some more HP I highly doubt It'd cav at higher rpm. Is your impeller nicked at all? The only time I have ever had cav problems was either rocks in my grate or nicked up impeller and then ....the water starts boiling! My grate is resessed about an inch at the front with no loader. I'm still new to this river boating shit but these aluminum guys have shit figured out! Check out www.outlaweagle.com and ask some questions.

    I run the White Lightning loader from Performance Jet. Money back guaranteed to be the fastest loader available. Check 'em out at http://www.performancejet.com

    No cavitation, very rsponsive on the throttle and mine GPS'ed at 76mph [email protected] 5400RPM with an American Turbine AB impeller and no droop, shoe or ride plate.

    Matter of fact Lucky, he's in Sebastopol...not too terribly far from you.
