The engine is behaving much better, but i think the throttle cable might have loosened or stretched or something. still getting about 700 rpm difference. Once i get up to speed, I can pull back the stbd throttle to 2/3 and still redline it, while the port is struggling to hit 4900 and max. I also need different props.

Sat.we put on a set of 32's. Hit the outside but is was so rough we didn't want to run over 75 mph. Sunday was the same story. Will be out Wednesday to test the props again. We picked up 4 mph at 4,000 rpm's.
Can't wait to see what happens on the top end.
Anyone going to be in the bay around noon or so, lets hook up for lunch.
