I purchased my 22C last summer with a 502/ procharger, the boat came with a (RH) Bravo-1 4-blade 32. The best I've been able to run is 4,900RPM, this spring the prop was labbed by BBlades. Currently running a stock bravo outdrive which I want to change over to a shortie in the near future more likely next spring. I believe that the 32 is to much prop for this current set up. Does anyone have a 29 4 Blade that I could try out? Is there a prop company that let's you try out a prop before purchasing? Is anyone in the market for a 32 Bravo 1 4 blade with Lab finish by BBlades?

Any input would be appreciated.

As a reference point my procharged 502 was hitting the limiter with a stock Bravo 1 turning a 28 Turbo at about 82 GPS. There was certainly speed left on the table as I didn't have it dialed in at all at that time but I was running it trimed out and very loose.

I think something around a 30 would have been about right for that setup.

I'd love to be able to spin something like your 32 after my engine build-up is done, but since that's moving at a glacial pace I'm not holding my breath.

Good luck..

once you put the shorty on your going to need that 32 p prop so hold on to it..

Still something dont seem rite,you should have north of 600 hp with the pro charger..how many lbs of boost at wot?

in comparison carl c is running a 525 efi n/a with a shorty and going 85+..shorty will give you 2-5 mph..

unless your belt is slipping (make sure the belt is vary tight)rub your have over the belt and if you see any black dust its slipping or your engine is not up to par in hp but may be hurt

I'm also in Waterford (Clarkston addy) just north of Lake Oakland. I'd let you try my 30p BBlades Bravo 1. It would be a good excuse to run together next week... 248-330-0048
I'd be interested in trying that 32 running light. We'll swap props and go for a run.
Fixx, 85+ is only on a good day. Low 80s running heavy or on really hot days are the norm.

Carl,
I'm on Watkins lake by the Lions den, but I keep the boat out by White Lake, how does Tuesday afternoon look? Your more than welcome to try out my 32, I'm curious how mine will run with a 30. What lake are you thinking about?

Oakland county White Lake or Lake Michigan White Lake? Lake Oakland is big enough for speed runs (barely). If you are at Lake Michigan I'd consider towing over there. Or we can plan time on Lake St. Clair. Tuesday afternoon is good for me and the weather looks good. Lotsa lakes. Take your pick :).

Tentative hook up on Lake St. Clair Tuesday. Yippee!

So what was the outcome of the labbed Bravo test??

The 32p was too much for my boat and Gregg beat me in a race on the river. There is a current there and we couldn't find any smooth water on the lake for gps runs.

I wonder how that Turbo Fusion 4 29p would do? I needed a 1.25" shaft or I would have been interested. Buizilla has a 1".

[ QUOTE=$originalposter]{$pagetext}[/QUOTE] Carl have you any experience with the Q4 on your setup. I did try one 32 today and it had very good grip up on plane no list at cruising speeds and felt overal stable and solid. At top speed attempts i had to trim it to much to air out causing slip. Guess with some work it should bee fine. Would like to try the X version but canīt find one for test.:sweden:
