Question prop help

I'm looking for help on where to start choosing a prop. I have a 25' obsession vortex (stepped tunnel hull) running a 525sc thru a bravo 1 drive (not sure what ratio). When I bought the boat from the dealer last fall they just slapped on a mirage 3 bladed prop (which I will use as a spare) and sent me on my way. Should I be looking for a 3, 4, or 5 bladed prop? Should It be lab finished??? I am expecting 80+ mph.
