What is minimum recommended HP motor to run this at best performance?
A: At 3000 rpm input (15.45 gpm output) and 2200 psi, this pump will require at least 31 Hp from an industrial gas or diesel engine. At 1200 rpm (6.18 gpm output) and 2200 psi it would require at least 12.5 Hp from the same type of driver.

can i reduce the inlet to 3/4 with an adaptor without affecting the pump?
A: If the inlet is flooded, it shouldn't be an issue. If the pump has to pull more than average vacuum to draw fluid it may lead to issues, depending on the situation.
