    Solas 15/20R

    Hey guys I am running right around 72 mph at 8250 rpm with my mods (see below) and the stock prop. If I try this prop I have a couple of questions:
    1) is it going to give me speed gains?
    2) is it going to kill my rpm?
    3) is acceleration going to be better?
    4) also 15/19 or 15/20

    i would probably buy the Riva prop since they are close to me and I can drive there. I know all props are different but they claim they're props are ckd with a pitch block yadda yadda.
    My mods are below, what are your opinions.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the help. Does speed freaks have a website? Do you think it's worth changing out the prop?
    Did acceleration get better w the repitched solas? Thanks again!

    With the mods you have now I would leave the stock prop in. If you go to more mods, then I would look into a prop switch.

    I did my mods one at a time. First 8350 tune, then prop to get rpm off limiter, then 4" to try to get rpm's up, then repitched prop. If I did all at once I would not have known where to begin. But in the end I reached my best top speed of 75.xx mph...though I did see acceleration and speed increases at each step along the way. Speedfreeks repitch was worth it for me...fast turnaround and reasonable $$.

    That's what I figured. I'll be chasing my tail for 500 bucks and maybe 2 mile per hour. Thanks!
