    Help with mods and what prop to use

    I had a stage 1 kit last season and I bought a brand new 14/17R concord prop. Now I have added some mods and wanted to ask what thoughts you had on what prop to use.

    I have an X charger 42 Lbs injectors 4" front intake, 2* pump wedge, Filled in ride plate holes and reverse bucket mod. I just wanted to know what you thought about the 14/17R Should I run it as is? Should I send it out to get more pitch put in? Should I sell it and buy something else? I was hoping to try this out this coming weekend, so I just wanted to get a jump on what I need.

    I would give it a test ride and see where your rpms really are.
    My best guess would be a 13/18 or 14/19 depitched a little.
    Good Luck !!

    its next to impossible to make a recommendation without knowing your true max rpm...you should seriously consider an after market ecu as well to remove the factory rpm limiter....

    I would say that you could easily add 4-5mm to the trailing edge of that prop with what you are planning for your ski. I would add 5mm to the trailing edge of that prop if it were my ski - then test ride it, and see which way it needs to bend.

    >> CLICK << All you need is a bench vise, an impeller spline tool, a 12" cresent wrench and a metric tape measure.
