I contacted the company who built the engine and they recommended not to be so low on the rpm and recommended me to go down to 30pitch to get increased rpm. The engine produces 850 hp at 6000 rpm. How much do I increase in rpm by going down 2 pitch? I should have 5600-6000 rpm. I drive with 0.54 boost and european 95octane fuel.
Nice ride you have btw
Thanks for the compliment Dan. Let us know how the 30 pitch prop works. Looks like we have very similar setups. These sure are fun little boats!

"How much do I increase in rpm by going down 2 pitch?"

As a general rule you will gain around 200 RPM per inch of pitch decrease; so in your case, around a 400RPM increase.
