    Which prop?

    Here is what my set up will be come time to finally put this baby back in the water.
    C-Kit SC
    Raising rate FPR (pirana)
    Jerry's aluminum intake manifold
    Riva ECU
    50# injectors although i may go to 55's to see what works best
    Riva valve train
    copper head gasket
    Riva thermostat
    Riva intake grate
    Jim's rideplate with welded skegs
    R&D pump wedge and vts extension rod
    Jerry's shorty waterbox with modded J-pipe
    81mm ring or whatever works best with the setup
    XS IC w/groco strainer
    Riva block offs
    Shibby's 4" rear intake
    and i think thats it. I saw that some other people were running a 15/20 untouched, is that the general concensus on the C-kit is a 15/20?

    15/20R is what you want, not just the 15/20,,,,but untouched?! That sucker is gonna have you on the limiter. Personally I would go with the 15/19R 3 blade, but the 4 blade is fine too. You're just going to need a repitch since you are running a monster setup there. The 15/20R is pitched for a Stage 2 ski. Once you get that setup dialed in you best be holding on tight! I'm sure someone else that is running this setup will chime in on what repitch you will need. You might want to talk to IMPROS too.

    Right now i have a 14/19r that the original owner left on there. So it looks like i may be able to bend that to a 15/20r? I forgot or neve knew in the first place what does r stand for again?

    The R means it's pitch blocked for accuracy from the factory. Just the regular 15/20,,,the blades will be all over the place.
