Mini 160 Upgrade

Is it possible to upgrade my existing Mini 160 with the new v3 DC pump?
Thanks!

No. The bodies pump nozzle hole and bubble plate different to accommodate the different pump. That said, the AC pump is still arguably one of the best skimmer pumps ever made and with proper maintenance will last a lifetime. Thatís not a knock on the RDX, itís just that there is no good reason to spend the extra money when the pump you have is an excellent pump.
