    Default Pros and Cons on Pump choice

    ive did several searches with no luck, just curious what style pumps to steer away from when looking for a boat, or say you find one cheap, ive heard ppl talking about what is good and bad,all i know anything about is i have a 12JC, but theres a boat coming up at auction, i dont know what pump it has but im not wanting to purchase something thats not worth fixing up. and just looking for all the pros and cons on different pumps,
    Thanks Guys,

    Berkeley, dominator, american turbine, legend. would be the pumps of my choice. Most the parts are readily available and they can take lots of power with the right parts.

    Jacuzzi, drake, golden eagle, are not very common these days and some aftermarket parts are sold, but I would stay away from these.


    A 12 JC is a good pump, it has a one piece bowl which makes it necessary to modify or purchase a two piece bowl if you want to use wedges, droops or extensions.

    The 12 JE and JF are good but they use a insert style intake, not my preference but they will work for most applications.

    so say berkely, all of them are good, like would you stay away from 12JF because is transom mounted?

    they're good pumps too and have their place, but they're limited to about 85mph with alot of hp behind them. if you plan on goin 80 or under, the 12jf or 12je are decent pumps and veryyyyyy easy to work on since they're already basically setback pumps

    i had about 800hp in frt of this 12je pump pushed taylor sj, it'd run 85 way before a 1000ft, had a blast with it and won a shitload of races against other vhulls with the 12je. somewhere way behind in this pic is a sanger sj with a berk 12jg trying to catch me, and i let him leave 1st

    mine was and i tried everything , but it got to the point where if i tried to feed the pump more water, the boat was gonna be too dangerous to shutdown safely after a pass. the intake is small and the throat angle so steep its tuff to maintain good intake pressure unless you feed em alot of shoe or loader, and then it'll overstuff the intake and lift the transom when you have to chop the throttle or motor dies. trust me, its scary as shit to be haulin ass with a 12je and the motor dies, i've been there, ripped my throttle right outta a brand new floor in the boat above when i lost a msd coil once, the boat took a 90* lefthand turn at 80+mph i still like the pumps tho, i was jus pushing my boat harder than i should've, i sold it that fall and bought the gullwing tx19

    Its pretty much been covered.

    No Panthers Jacuzzis or E pumps. With an E pump you need to pull the engine to service the bearing side of the jet.
