    what kind of HP do they support. Any of the guys here putting a decient amount of money into a impeller normally have to go stainless because they are putting down too much HP for aluminum.

    for 500 you're already close to what a bronze aggressor would cost damn sho a hella lot better impellor than that billet crap.

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    It's made of ALUMINUM, which means it enjoys the same wonderful fatigue properties (that everyone ignores) as Aluminum Cast.

    Spend $200 more and go bronze, and don't worry about overpowering it and the pieces ruining a $1000+ bowl.
