    Solas 15/20 rpm update

    After installing a 15/20 Solas prop with SS/wr some forum members were asking for before and after rpm's. Before on stock prop I was seeing 75 on dash at 8400 all over the limiter. Today's top speed runs showed 73mph at 7980 at 85 degrees with unusual swamp-ass humidity. Hoping for better numbers when it's not so friggin humid out

    What pitch was your oem prop?

    Do you have adjustable nozzle/rings?

    What kind of air intake?

    Are these speeds GPS or speedo? Wow that 15/20 stole some serious RPM. So what's your next step? Raise rev limit? More mods to get RPM back?

    I've sorted through all the "how to" threads on how this is done but Im still not too confident in trying. I don't have a vice or tools to bend/roll the prop edges. I guess it would help having a before and after photo from someone who has done it successfully.

    If you got a filter of any kind on that air intake....take it off and replace it with some fiberglass screen material.

    You'd be surprised how restrictive filters are.
