Default 42 big step with 6s that run over 100mph

Curious on the ones out there how the water pickups are set up? Iím having some porpoise issues accelerating after 98 mph. I have a strong feeling Iím disturbing the water off the back of the boat. Let see some pics. Thanks !!

Im identical to that. I also have 2 pickups for the chillers on either side of the drain plug. What would cause this thing to lift and break the prop bite at over 100. Spins 17x33-15 rake
