how fast are u runing now ?
and at what rpm ?
this info will help us figure it out better

dont know what prop's but i would think the speed would be 100 to 110 mph depending on build ,prop,s and set up and maybe more . it's hard to tell ,
best thing is run the boat with the prop's u have and if you hit the rev limiter with ease then you can try 1 size bigger

I'd think it should touch 105 plus pretty easy, the 32 blades should be close also

I saw 103 around 5k RPMs but I had some more trim to play with.... That was my first time running the boat so I let out. I think more seat time will help.

Maybe thats all Ill get out of the boat with this set up I dont know, Im ok with that.

You should be around 110 with that power. Whats your gear ratio in the drives? RPM's should be 5200-5300.

With 525s and 1.35 drives that boat should run around 112-113 with a set of 34 bravo 4 blades. Were the notches filled in on that hull? if not, I would loose the boxes and put the drives back on the transom. What deck to you have? Canopy or pleasure deck?

Im guessing it was the pleasure one that was in LA. If so that boat had ITS which is not a problem with the notch in the hull.
