Julio,

Quit posting questions about Mikey's new boat and make him get on the board!!!

Saw Mike last week. He was talking props then. I think he has 25" Mirage's now. Where is L.J? He will see this thread and know for sure.

Going to the Boat Club Meeting Thursday?

I had a 97' with 7.4's
it had 25p mirage pluses
on it, rpms were 4500 on top,
that seemed to be a good set
for that boat/ engine combo

The rev limiters on the 7.4's
with TB5 is only 4700.
so aim around there

DEPENDES on what you want all out top end or hole shot and alot of midrange accleration if you want all out top speed go with 25 mirage props and have them labbed,they will plane out slow but run great on top end where as if you run 23 stock you will need to have additional cupping added for the best performance,It just so happens either choice 23 or 25 you will need to be in the middle of the two for the best performance.// being that you now have 25's , I would tune these to get the most you can.
