    68.8mph @ 8350 RPM's

    Well it was just as many had stated, put the stock prop back on the 04 GTX SC LTD and watch the RPM's and speed climb. With the Solas 13/20 I was doing 66.3 and 7650 RPM's. After the prop change back to stock, I hit 68.8 and 8350 with 5 bars of fuel. Only stayed on the water for about an hour and had to wrap it up. I did notice that the first run was 66.8, the second and 67.7 and finally 68.8. Made two more runs and both low 68's. Now I wanna put in the power pipe and stainless ring and lower that fuel to get me to the consistent "ELUSIVE" 70 mph mark.

    Red,
    The soals impeller that you have is it stright out of the box? The reason I asked that is alot of the soals props out of the box were and are not preforming to their fullest. It took two pitches from PPG to get my Solas pulling 70mph. Also is that a 3 blade or four blad impeller??

    Jrsrxp,

    It was a 4 blade and part of the Riva Stage I Kit. I agree and it was on its way to be repitched yesterday. It was way off anyway with the current mods I have. Sure glad I held on to the stock prop because I had a few that wanted to purchase it, and it gives a good idea as to where I want to be with pitching the Solas.
