77mph 8450rpm...... mass cavatation
Hi i got major hole shot issues with my current 13.23.
what prop would be a good idea top pitch too? and also all that cavatiting on hole shot will it reck sc clutches?

You could open up the leading edge of the prop to a 14 and also try a smaller nozzle.
You have a SHO right? May want to have Jim mod your plate. Your speed seems a bit low for your level of mods and the RPM you're getting. What are you doing for engine cooling?

Sorry ...yes its a Sho cruiser and i did have 70L of fuel in the tank.....That probably robbed a little

engine cooling is stock but the intercooler is off its own cooling line

Getting the ride plate modded will give you some more speed.
How many times are you banging the limiter on takeoff? Some cavitation is normal with the 155mm pump so you are going to have to utilize some throttle control unless you want to burn up your stator veins.

1-2 seconds of pure spinning up..
I would like a modded plate but being over In the uk makes it costly

like hitman said, open up the leading edge of the prop to 14, but cavitation could be caused by alot of different issues, just to name a few
is your pump shoe/grate properly sealed with 5200?
have you re sealed your transom?
hows your prop to wear ring clearance?
have you inspected the pump to make sure the veins are ok?

Yeah everything is sealed up good and proper just too much power for my little prop I recon.....
I'm rubbish with pitches so bare with me..... With opening it up to a 14.23 affect acceleration and in what way ? How will top end alter?

start with a 14/23 as we discussed ian and take it from there. you need to try it and see where you go from there.
