    Question about R&D exit nozzle with ride plate.

    The description of the nozzle says: The 5 degree positive angle lightens the nose and adds top speed over any other nozzle.

    If we are messing with the angle of the ride plate does this interfere with it or play a role in the angle of the ride plate in regards to lift of the front of the boat? Thanks in advance guys.

    Most of the adjusting on the plate is to compliment the nozzle angle and allow it to lift the nose.

    That 87mm nozzle though will give you more rpms and a better hole shot. Well for some anyways.

    Yeah - R&D says you have to use the nozzle with a new prop. Has anyone not and just changed the prop? What kind of results?
