My new 6025's arrived today. A big difference from the older ones. The pump also seems to be made better. No problems what so ever with start up like the older models. I will still break it in before putting them on a wave maker but seems like it is not necessary with the new ones. The clips for the bracket are much stronger. I think Tunze can finally say that the 6025's are a great quality pump.

When did they update the 6025 and how do you tell if you have the new or old version?

Are the new 6025's coming "pre-modded"?

They didn't leave them, I had to sign a slip and they delivered the next day? I can't figure out what you're getting at . . ?

Either way, I have the new clips, I'll be replacing tomorrow and I have to say Roger at Tunze is awesom! It would be so nice if you could order with such confidence with all other vendors.

Flow is the same. The impellor assembly is different. There is a metal O ring around the impellor shaft. The base of the shaft appears to be constructed differently. The dont think the shaft is removable (I didnt pull hard at all). They are not premodded, if they were , we would have no toys to play with.

Which maxi jet are you comparing it to?

The max flow a 6045 can do is 1500 gph at 10W power draw, after full blast mod and fitted with a slightly trimmed 6055 prop. Mine is still kicking nicely, no cleaning needed so far, that is about over 6 months in continuous operation.

I read somewhere that the gulfstream 1600 is rated 17W with the use of a 1200 pump? I must say the maxi mods are looking good now, so it can easily be done to pump out 2500 gph after overdriving a maxijet 1200 to maybe 25W.

Kragen/Pepboys has the same thing with a black carrying case for $9.99 sometimes.
Its a Makita, err, Nokita actually...

I use one of the Chicago Electric rotary tools in my DIY projects and it works fine IMO. Best of all they can use Dremel bits also

I have explained in detail how I did it in this thread.

Sorry I misread you thought you were asking how I did my 6055 2,900gph mod.

I also explained after one month of running, the Hegan? magnet prop driver could not withstand the force by the 6055 motor and wore out, I had to put the Tunze stock prop and driver back in and it is doing about 350 gph to 1700 gph on my single controller now.

so I've read pretty much all the pages on this and I'm tossing up the idea of changing my seios to the 6025 modded. I'll have 4 in my tank. is a 140, dims are 55x24x24. Do you guys think they will do good in the tank? I have 2x1100's and 2x1500 seios in there now on the seio controllers. Has anyone ran the modded pumps on the seio controller and had any long term luck with them?

glx, i would to the normal mod, the super flow, but not the widening mod.

in other words, trim down the inner tube, cut slot in the bottom of the outer tube, and put them in the tank!

each one will blow the water pretty far, and cause lots of indirect flow along the way. let us know how it goes

maybe cause it doesnt void the warranty...

that topic has been covered many times, and tunze reps said it is not voided.

why someone would take an old proverb and try to make it funny is beyond me.......
