I am not the original owner assume xdimension is stock
havenít purchased new props yet was waiting for recommendation since nobody seems to swap Props
Was just looking through classifieds trying to find boats with similar power to get an idea prop selection but now Iím more confused than ever from what I see the same boats with 525 hp are running The same Props Merc 30p 4blade as I ran with old motors ran 97mph at 5700 rpm. New motors make good power up to 6000rpm
I could see 1.35 gearing producing that #

At some point the 1.5 gearing will reach its limit with a 32-34 pitch prop and on the limiter @ 6k......as mentioned.....then you need to go to a 1.35 1.36 gear to get the revs down and pick up speed.
