    Hey guys

    Ok so my TS2 otp-2000 pump just went, like I'm talking about smoking out going:banghead:.

    What are some good options for a replacement pump that shouldn't take too much modding? I see some shops advertise Hailea pumps as a good alternative, any ideas on what I should be looking at?

    the otp pump and hailea pump is the same thing....otp pump has pin wheel impellor and hailea pump has standard impellor
    so easier to get haliea pump and add the old venturi
    otherwise get the bubble magus sp pump but you would need to mod the outlet and venturi

    I have a second hand OTP-2000 pump somewhere, just need to find it and test it. R500 and it is yours, but let me test it first.
