    Do lowpro intakes require a different loader than a standard Berk intake? If so I guess I'll soon be out a couple/few hundred beans

    Depends on the intake, they are all suposed to fit, but some of the castings had some sort of cast/core shift.

    I have a standerd one Im using now and dont know if yours is different. Im thinking mine is more of a blocker than a help.
    Trying to get a idea on what some guys are running on thier lo pro intakes.
    I figuerd some of the pump guys would know.

    MPD low profile and berks should be able to use all the same loaders.

    Aggressor and Meirsch low profile will use a slightly different loader from what I have seen. The pad on these two are recessed farther into the boat.

    Kjell, Chris, anyone...wouldnt the L/P intake need a different ramp angle to redirect the flow of water? Wouldnt The standard style direct the flow to high on the imp?
    The mounting pad would be the same, but i think the design would be just alittle different. I dont know, so thats why im asking here.

    Same info I have, from when purchasing my MPD lo-pro intake. My original MPD loader fits just fine, which I ran on a Berkeley intake prior to the Lo-Pro.

    Default Ramp loaders

    Used a low profile Merish in Old Skool and found that just about any intake would fit but had dramatic difference in performance. Tried an number of different ramp angles and finally found a loader I liked. Have been using MPD intakes in all of our So Cal's 19 and found this intake easier to tune the way we like it.

    Do you make or have some for the meirsh that you liked. I know what I have isnt what I want. It doesnt need all the water at the top I dont think.

    My MPD Loader works fine in my Meirsch intake but requires a 1 degree tapered shim. MPD supplied this with the loader. if you are starting from scratch, I think the popular opinion is to use the MPD intake. Also the shoes will be a standard fit on all MPD's. Not the case on the Meirsch, every intake requires its own shoe because of random bolt patterns.

    Are you running an inducer? if so which inducer? Load points on a low profile can make a big difference. Where are your aiming points right now with the loader you r using. Have you modified your keel?
