I agree. Your 250 Baja is a lot of boat for the props you mentioned and only 415 HP. A 22p Bravo I (4 blade) or 23p Mirage+ (3 blade) like Griff mentioned will put you where you want to be.

Awe that sucks! Sorry to hear that! Been a long time since I had gas related issues like that from a mainstream road station. Usually diesel in winter is only time I've had issues.

He also stated above he is still using THRU PROP exhaust setup. That is the major restriction. I bet once you install the through-transom exhaust it will perk up quite a bit.

I would agree. Very few stations have non-ethanol. Usually just the REC 90 variety if they do. Stick with a major oil company (Mobil, BP, Shell, Sunoco) and you will be fine. Their additive...
