    Default Stupid inducer question

    First off I have a jacuzzi wj pump that is still all jacuzzi parts. It currently is running 87mph... I'm running out of impeller options so I have decided to energize the pump(putting Berk parts in it) was thinking about getting inducer installed at same time. Are there any negative effects from an inducer? Was thinking maybe it could effect top end speed and engine rpm. Thanks for any feedback.

    Have installed these in our mixed flow WJ and YJ conversions but not tried in standard WJ mainly due to WJ oem "taper fit" impeller design and large shaft OD

    I have a new aluminum b in it now and need to free up a few rpm. Just a lot easier to tune when I got buddy's with tons of Berk stuff I can try.

    There are absolutely no drawbacks to running an inducer!! I personally don't know if you can put one on a Jacuzzi...

    Jacuzzi don't need no stinking inducer. They put an extra blade in to take care of that issue
