    Yes it was during a power pass,
    Do you think it's from over pressure of the suction?

    AJ , this is more common on "E" pumps and but occasionally Gs Cs etc one way is when/if you "fly" either on purpose or not the the Jet can/will take a gulp of air and when it (the boat) "settles" the air in the top of the intake is shockloaded by the returning water charge and blows out the cleanout lid or worse the suction casting like yours. My Tx 16 blew 3 covers before I got a loader that worked and "plated" reinforced Meirsch cover Tom

    just be glad the jets set back !

    (Call if you need a suction)

    you got VERY VERY lucky it broke like it did, if that happened inside the boat (the break is 1/4" away) you would have been on the bottom of the lake in a heartbeat.

    I have broken a berkeley before, its not all that uncommon. It probably broke for a reason but its possible it just broke from fatigue. this is the reason alot of us went to Dominator housings, they are bulletproof but you pay a weight penalty.

    I have a couple used suctions as well if you need one.

Funny thing bout them je pumps, they weren't designed to work with 650 hp motors @ 6000rpm. My issue was from high speed cavitation due to the lack of quality installation commonly found with insert pump suction pieces. Good news is I was able to cut it out and install a whole new Aggressor 'R' pump with custom intake and all the goodies. Now it launches and decellerates dead staight, handles excellent and picked up 12mph right out of the box before tuning the hardware. That's a nice inducer impellor in front of that alum. impellor. Is it new? Have you made any other changes to the pump hardware? Have you increased rpm's significantly or is this just one of those wtf head scratchers. Sorry to see your problem on such a nice looking boat. Looks like it's set up pretty well until this happened. What do you think caused this? Good luck with repair. I hope it leaves you with at least as much improvement as I received with mine. Keep us posted, I'd like to learn as much from this as possible.
    Thanks,
    JJ

    It doesnt even look that thin where it broke, alot of times there is alot of core shift and one side is much thinner than the other.

    does the boat surge or feel like its unloading when your up to speed? you might have some setup issues going on.

    Some engine specs (assuming under 650 with that alum impeller?) and few pics of the bottom and setup would help. What boat is it?

    The boat did surge or feel like its unloading, The boat ran 96 @ 6000rpm,
    It's a 19ft Nordic Tunnel, with a 496, I will get a few pics of the bottom and setup later.
    Thanks for the help
