I Am Very Interested In How Often You Guys Change Intake Impellers I Personally Change Them No More Than 100 Hrs Being That The Lt 1 Has Cast Aluminum Heads I Definetly Dont Wish To Take Any Chances After All I Feel That An Impeller Is Definetly Cheaper To Replace Than Cast Aluminum Heads Thank You And Happy And Safe Skiing And Boating :) ::

I will be changing mine at the beginning of every season, or as needed whichever comes first.

Beginning of the new season for me. Cheap insurance for overheat.

I pull the impeller at winterization, then reinstall it in the spring before it hits the water. I've had luck w/ this method as i've occasionally had brand new impellors fail, so when I get one that works they tend to last several seasons if you take them out to decompress in the fall. Watch that temp sender. I've noticed that I seldom get a full impeller failure w/o warnings, mine always climb slightly first.

New impeller at the beginning of each season for me.
I have a LT1 too,and I don't want to overheat.

Last year 3 oil changes, if the weather hold out I'll get 3 in
this year also. Not bad for an Ohio summer.
