    who is best to tweek prop?

    i got good test results this weekend on my GTX SC with mods.
    currently has a 12/20.
    i got best rpm of 7050 to 7150, lets say 7100.
    and a top speed of 63.3, lets say 63.

    who can tweek my 12/20 anyone in the jersey/philly area?
    or do i have to send it off to impros?
    jerry, do you do this, or any other tuners?
    i know that my 12/20 was tuned before, it is not a 12/20 anymore, but i dont know the exact pitch cuz i got is used, i know it was bent by PPG.
    only reason i am hesitant to send it to impros is cuz i have heard they take a long time to turn around, i am hoping someone can do it local, or faster. dont want to loose more than a week off the water now that it is summer.

    I'm by far not a expert like Jerry but I have tweeked several of my props with good results. I can give you a hand this wekend if you want.

    Send it to Impros. They will ship it back in a couple of days.

    sorry all , i meant to say impros, not solas... i will edit in a sec.
    my impeller was a 12/20,
    then it was bent for a GTX SC that had a ton of mods, by PPG
    Rotax Racing ECU
    Rotax Racing Intercooler
    Rotax Racing Thermostat
    Rotax Racing clutch-compete kit
    Vortec SC Impeller
    Solas 12/20 Impeller-repitched by PPG
    Riva-racing open air kit
    Racing power exhaust system
    B.O.V
    Complete Opas removal kit
    Pump wedge
    2004 SC pump upgrade

    so i know its too much prop for my simple ski...
    all i got is
    upgraded 2005 pump w GTX SC wear ring and impeller.
    R&D air intake ( the short rear one that goes up by the coolant bottle)
    GH waterbox
    opas removed
    2.0 wedge
    stock Supercharger.

    my ski was turning 7650 last fall , all stock.

    now its pulling 7100 at 63.3mph, better holeshot and no cavitation
    want to get it to 7600 and see what it'll do!!!

    unless someone can recommend another upgrade to get me some more power???
    ECU upgrade? to a 04 or 05 215 hp unit?
    or upgrade my SC? i am doing a rebuild on the SC this fall anyways...
    what would be simplest cheapest way to get my rpm's up to 7600 by boosting engine power??
    then i wouldnt spend money on tweeking a prop, i would spend it on performance!!!!

    Before I bought my ski from my friend who works on skis for a living sent the impeller to Impros. They have had really good luck with them.
