what kind of rpms ya turning, i can see you losing 2-5 with a set of stock props over custom, ive heard many say that they actually lost mph with nose cones ( not installed correct ) like i said you changed too much to think you were going to put it in the water for a mph increase right off. im guessing by your last comment that you have found a cig to trade for. i hope to see jessie james up close before you get rid of it, im sure that its more impressive then the pictures do justice.
