    Anyone running a X19 with a SHO 175?

    If so care to share your setup and what you think about the performance?

    Thanks

    I purchased a X19 with a 175 SHO 2 weeks ago. I have only had it out on the lake 1 time. It handled like crap on the big end. I done some measuring and have found out my motor height is wrong. I have been at work for a week, have about 8 more days before I go on days off. I can't wait to get home and correct the motor height issue and go give it another try.

    I have a 2014 x19 with 175 vmax and 59mph is the best I have seen so I'm really curious if yall ever figured anything out with yalls I am really disappointed so for just because I had bigger expectations from reading people's numbers on these boats

    Seeing what someone has said and seeing a actual GPS run is 2 very different things in most cases!! Cj

    Raised my 175 1". 2 people, all our gear and tackle, live well full and rough water I saw 58mph on GPS but I had a lot of trim left in it I think. I expect 62-65 mph should be easily attainable, possibly more, with my set up with same load. Need better water to find out. But I noticed I cruise around 40mph most of the time anyways.

    I was running a 175 VMAX on my 2015 X-19 with a 12" set back. I was running 63ish tournament load, solo I would avg 65 and top speed in perfect conditions was 68. I ran a 25M, 23 ot4, 23P tempest, 24P TRO4, 25 trophy, 24P TXP 3 blade, and few others. Best all around prop was the 25P trophy. The best P2P heights for me was 3.5" cruising and 2.5"ish @ WOT.

    I you guys seriously think that 175 SHO has more than 5-10 hp more than the 150 SHO you're kidding yourself. You might get a couple mph more than a 150. Trying for any more is going to be a lot of prop changing for nothing.

    Raised my motor another .25". I am now 3.25" PTP. I have a 6" manual plate and a FXP 23p prop. I hit 64.1 GPS before chine walk got to bad, wind was pushing me around. I also had full livewell. This was a personal best for me.

    I have the same set up as you. At 64.1 mph what was your water pressure and rpm?

    Thanks

    To be honest I dont remember rpm. Around 5800, I think. Trimmed up high and water pressure around 15-16psi.

    Thanks. I bought my rig last July but had a loaner prop till last week because my 23 FXP was on back order. Now I'll start tuning it. First trip with new prop was 58 mph a 5200 rpm. I am 5" ptp so it looks like I have a bit of room to work with. Thanks again for the info.

    You will enjoy it even more once you raise the plate. It handles so much better. I dont know why they put unmatched props and plates bottomed out on these boats.
