Highest speed you'll get is the steepest pitch impeller that will allow the engine to run in it's MAX HP range. Boat size/weight will affect what impeller works best.
Also remember that you normally rob from 1 area to gain in another.
So if you prop fopr max speed, chances are it'll be a pig coming out of the hole.
But in general, here's some reading for you to get familiar.

If you are using the 780 engine, use the 4 blade from the SLX, these did work very well, in fact back in 1995 I used the 4 blade from the slx in my slt 750 & it worked better low end & top speed. Either way the difference will only be within 1 mph between the slx or slt impeller.

Wonder how fast that thing is going?

Sounds like you would need earplugs when driving that, without the hull to muffle the sound. Looks like an interesting ride though.
