    I have one and it skims the holy crap out of my system. Mine is a modified H3 though running off a 9000lph Askol pump.

    the pumps used on atb,bubble king and future lab is the laguna pumps i think,as atb,bubble king,future lab ,they all do there own mods with empellor housing i could be mistaken on this but after stripping my bubble king a few years ago and my atb its the same pump,they change the front housings and impellor shafts with there own,bubble king bosts a anti lime bypass and so i think does ATB,i also found with my ATB you cannot buy that pump as standard off laguna range,pls bubble king and atb i could be mistaken no offence taken to any of the above mentioned companies
