I have a new egret. Great thus far. Only nagging issue is the live well. I have an 800gph pump with clam shell output. Can I replace the pump with an 1100 gph pump or would I have to place new fittings and hoses as well?

Those boats had inferior designs on the live well and were smaller. They had the spray nozzle rather than the clamshell which would take slime off bait.

I did a test to figure out this same problem. I took a five gallon bucket of water and pumped till it was dry. The first time was with an 800 with 3/4" hose five feet long. It pumped the bucket in 36 seconds. Next I did an 1100 reduced down to 3/4" with the same five foot of hose. It pumped the bucket dry in 32 seconds. Then I pumped the bucket with an 1100 with five feet of 1 1/8" hose. It pumped the bucket in 22 seconds. So to answer your question, if you change to 1100 gallon per hour pumps you much change the hose and fittings to 1 1/8" or will will gain very little.

This is what i did to my Egret 189 with a 1100 GPH pump with 1 1/8 fittings and hose. Also take note to the standpipe.

What happened when you pumped with the 800 pump connected to the 1 1/8" hose? 25s?
