My last Aluminum was in perfect condition in 2005, spring. Had seen 16 years, but was perfect, undamaged, no cracking.i agree with impatient 1 , have seen the stock impellors used and abused and survive beyound intention, have also seen them gernaded without warning when shocked. have never understood the logic of spending thousands on the boat and engine and then cheapen out on the impellor upgrade. personally never thought it was worth the chance.
yes and no. it'll handle 600hp until you unload and reload it reallllllly hard, then kaboom ask me how i knowwwwwhand
DuaneHTP has a very nice picture (has posted it before), and I have seen the "artifact" personally at his shop.I know of someone that put about 800hp to one in a race boat it gernaded just past the tree. But it had one hell of a holeshot
If you boat in deep water, go bronze and save 1/2 the cost, HP ability is equal according to Aggressor.Thanks for the input and pics!
Looks like I will be buying a SS impeller.
Not worth the risk!!!!!!!!
