Nice work Jerry
With the warm front sweeping across VA, I was finally able to get back out on the lake since the ice has finally melted and get some results from the repitch.
Water 42, Air 53, Boost 8.5, 70.5 @ 8350-8400 (solid and finally off the fricken limiter, only hit 8450 twice...Thanks!! ) Never anything less than 70.1.
I did actually lose .5 mph from the last run. Only thing different was a full tank of gas because I thought I was done for the season versus an almost empty tank and the thru hull installation and removing the PPG power pipe.
The thru hull is shweet. Has a much better and crisper sound at 3000 RPM's than the PPG. The PPG pipe had an annoying sound at those RPM's coming into the wake zone.
Let's see what the reflash brings and possibly another repitch?? One other thing, I was taking on some water, much more than usual since the thru hull installation so I guess I gotta use some more silicone by the block off???? Not a whole lot of water though because it never even reached the bilge pump level which is very close to the hull, just the area directly below the motor was full

Great news Jay!
If you need another repitch after the reflash i'll be glad to help.
I agree, the thru hull sounds much better than the pipe, or a free flow.
Nice mellow tone to it.
Check the fitting on the exhaust pipe by the exit (brass barbed fitting) it has been known to leak.
