Got a question for ya'll

Postby NNewcom » Sun Apr 14, 2013 3:07 pm

So here a couple weeks ago I purchased a 02 Intercepter 212 with the 5.0L. It has a 3 blade stainless 19 pitch prop. They also gave me a 4 blade 18 pitch prop.

So my question... Will I notice a big change by moving to the 4 blade? Will it give me more top end?

With the 3 blade the top end per speedo was 48moh. Does that sound about right?

You will get less top speed with the 18" prop but it will pull better
and she will plane at lower speed, good for tubing and wake boarding .
You should check the revs at wide open throttle to make sure that they are
in the motor manufacturers range.Check out the prop section of the forum.
