    I was hitting 66 today with Montgomery Special without trying

    Where did the prop come from JB?

    The boat should be faster with his wallet being lighter from the lab job!

No more blow out, ever.

    With a slogan like "Speed changes You" I'd say yes, they were looking for top end numbers.
    So the better option is to add power, improving the engines ability to overcome the additional resistance.

    Add power = take away reliability

    I've been tempted several times to yank my 7.4L and add some square port heads, cam, etc. But from what I've learned from other folks experiences, it never seems to end well. If you like boating and putting hours on the water, I would leave her alone. But that's just my opinion.

    Adding power isn't going to solve stern lift caused by a four blade prop on a deep drive setup. The B1 runs better on shallow drive depths. The 272 are deep and work well but if you're going to try to squeeze the last couple of ticks out of her you have to have a prop that will carry the bow as well not just lift the stern.

    Edit: Our two boats are apples and oranges comparison.

    What was the name of the 2+2 prop I was told to get for my 20" Outlaw? Tried to backtrack but its to far back I guess.
