As you probably already know ,90% of the Fountains run their props inward. I run my props inward on my Mirage and it helped getting rid of the chinewalk considerably and picked up around 2 mph .With the props turning out was a dream for handling around the docks with shifters only.Turning inward I now have to use the throttles slightly.No biggie.

Don't know if the 525's ECM can be reflashed or not ,but I would stay with the stock tune , unless you always fill up on land where high octane is available at Chevron. I have a superchip tuner for my Mustang and I found no benefit when I tuned the car for 91+. The engine was built for 87 [ fast burn ] and it runs just as great as when I tuned for 91.Just my 0.02 .

Ps; my boat used to chinewalk pretty bad running on the delta pad only, turning the props inward allowed the stern to sink a tad ,so the chines can stabilize the hull better without using too much tab. Here's short clip showing a rock solid ride with the props turning in.
