    Whats the best prop for a stock ski

    I mostly ride in bay chop so put on an intake grate. Plue i was kicked off the thing once when i chopped the throttle. On the rare days when the bay is flat how can i pick up that lost mph from the intake grate without doing engine mods. I was guessing a prop? Which one?

    a stock prop is best on a stock boat.

    if you want more speed , check out the free mods for your model ski.

    I'm running my stock prop (untouched!) with a C3 wheel and an R2 and absolutely love my RPM's (8400 until heat soak ). Would open the leading edge up to 15 or so if I ever took the time to take it out of the boat.

    I thought about selling the stocker after it was removed about a month or so after I got the ski last year and am glad I didn't.

    Craig, are you still running a 160mm liner? Nvmd that wouldn't work

    Wow, a 12/20 with the C3 and R2 only brings you to 8400rpms. Are you on the Stock nozzle? I would have thought a 20 trailing edge and C3/R2 would be over 8500. Good info to know!

    I'm sure if I had and aftermarket IC the RPM's would be higher with the additional boost.

    I am on the stock nozzle. I have a machined round one but haven't installed it yet--barely have time to even get the ski out with ongoing shtuff.

    I heard that. Might be why I haven't been in a big hurry to try it.

    I don't like loose anything except the opposite sex.
