I would change that prop to a 5 blade lab finished.




Really the t53 l13 b is close to 1600 hp.
and at idle you can actually stop the output shaft to shift.
That's why most use calipers on a rotor coupled to the shaft.

I admit TurbineMarine is on the cutting edge. However When I was looking he told me that the rigging I was using was all outdated and his clientele didn't care what they spend. Most likely the reason he is so expensive.

i like the J-58

they might be a bit hard to get ahold of, and a bit expensive too
