    Default impeller advice?

    Have a 17' Sanger Picklefork. Its fairly heavy at about 1700 pounds all in all. 600 hp off NOS, 750 on it. Want stainless impeller, not aluminum.
    Would you suggest a B, AB or A?
    Berkeley factory brand or is another a better choice?
    Is adding a pre-inducer worth it? Bowl stuffer worth it?
    Thanks for any feedback.

    Would definatley suggest Stainless as you have aleady consider or perhaps Bronze, Knowing where the engine actually makes power is vital to your impeller selection , a bowl stuffer certainly couldn't hurt and is simple to install, We would suggest you give thought to machining the pump shaft for the inducer running the boat without it first for some baseline numbers and performance Tom

    Tom gives great advice! Just one thing to remember is you can always go big and cut it down A to a AB or B but you can't add to it!
