Impeller

I want to replace the ballast and raw water pump impellers on my 2015 X30 but haven't done it before. Not sure what sizes or types I need and the manual doesn't offer any help. I'm not near where my boat is stored, so I also can't pull off the covers to see, and I'd like to order impellers so that the next time I'm at my lake house I can replace them. Appreciate any info you can offer.

My first impeller change on our 6.0L took me probably nothing short of 3 or 4 hours and 5+ phone calls t Aric. The subsequent 2 took me probably 30 minutes each. Ballast impellers are easy, engine, not as much. I can PM you my number incase you have any questions once you get started to walk you through it over the phone, just let me know. I’ll go see if I have any pictures from it.
