    2008 Triton 21X setup help????

    I have a 2008 Triton 21X with a 250 Pro Xs. I don't have the top end I should I am gonna try a 25p fury and was just wondering if anyone could tell me Prop to Pad measurement. I am coming from a bullet where you went 1" below to above the pad until you lost water pressure orbit blew out. If someone could help me out I would really appreciate it. I am turning 5900 RPMs and have a horrible hole shot.

    First pull a couple plugs, second raise the engine until it has tendency to blow out coming out of the hole, third that boat really likes a Tempest prop, but your fury will work. Your engine is probably low.

    2.5 below. I run a 25 fury most of the time but when I run my 27 Tempest, it'll go just over 80

    Agreed, 26p Tempest for overall performance and 27p Tempest for best speed. Set both at 2.25 - 2.50 ptp and let it eat!
