Default anybody still out there?

lots of good info in this thread
new to me 22, just picked up, 454/330, Alpha, Cleaver, 174 original hours
purchased from the original owner

the plan is to run it as is this season & upgrade over the winter
like to end up with a 70+ top speed
500-600hp, Bravo w/shower and hydraulic steering seems to be the formula
suggestions appreciated

What speed are you getting now? You should be close to 70mph.

best of 59 on the GPS so far, speedometer is much more optimistic
only turning 4000 or so RPMs, I'm going to look into the gearing and prop
current prop is a Cleaver

this is the prop we're running;
Quicksilver 48 89802 A5 21P
Alpha drive with 1.32R
4400 RPM, best of 60 MPH (GPS)
454 Mag (330HP)
is there a better prop for top speed?
seems like we should be able to turn more RPMs?
I'd like to get as much as I can out of this combo for this summer, changes are coming over the winter.
Thanks for the help

Andy
