    What prop do you think I should try?

    I have a 27ft baja with a 555 big block making around 550HP. I have a labbed 26 pitch 4 blade on her right now. Hitting 73mph gps at 5150RPM. What prob do you think I should try to get closer to 75-77 range?

    I cant't believe know one has replied yet. Sounds like you are dialed in pretty well. What is your target RPM? You may want to try a 25p Mirage for top speed, thats what I run. Only downside is with my raised x dim the mirage blows out in tight corners. Also you have to limit your RPM in take offs to about 3k or you will blow out. If you do a lot of water sports stick with the Bravo prop.

    I have a '92 270 that has see 78 GPS with a 26P Mach Sterndriver 4 blade. My 502 makes around 575HP. Rev limiter is set at 5600. I had some rpms left, but not enough 'nads. Chine walk was crazy! I'm not going to try it again until I get hydraulic steering. Hoping to get to 80.

    Pat, you definitely need some hydraulic steering and would hit up Steve(Violator) on that conversion kit....... Much better price than Imco.......
