FFO: I'ld start with a 30" Bravo 1. With that amount of HP you'll just break the Hydro lose ... been there/ done that. At least make sure you try a Bravo 1 ... you'll see. I have, oops, had (just sold it today) a 280 with a whipplecharged 502 which gives about the same hp.

FFO: Best I ever saw was 85mphgps ... perfect conditions. Mine was a non-labbed 30". The Whipple included the optional throttle bady and was supposed to produce(per Whipple) 640hp.

FFO: I run a 30 pitch bravo and my motor is 800 plus HP. It will run low to mid 90s. When i first got the boat it had a 415 hp 502 engine and I install a b&m 250 blower on it. I ran a 28 pitch hydro on it and the boat ran in the low 80s. I tested both hydromotive & bravos. The hydromotive was 2or3 mph faster but was hard to get on plane and would blow out on turns & rough water.

No my hydro did not have a ring on it. I cant get the bravo to blow out. I had two hydromotive that i threw blades off the props. So i dont think much of hydromotive props. But if you got the prop i would start with it. maybe you will have better luck than i did.

26thoroughbred : I dont have prop . The guy that did work on motor said he would trade me for my prop . They said the blow out ring would help alot . I think it will loose some top end speed.. Maybe he will trade for bravo 1 !

Geezz Sydways, It wasn't intended to bash as you call it.. Altho you read it like you see it .sydways or upside down or whatever ..that's why the board has comment's i suppose.. can't anyone ever laugh & poke a little fun without making someone who actually doen't know me make a comeback statement like that.
Pssst.That wasn't a bash
