Prop question - sunesta 232

7 posts in this topic

Sunesta 232 with new 5.7L remanufactured motor and bravo 3 outdrive.   With 26P props it runs 4K rpm trimmed up.   Operating range is 4400-4800 for the motor.  24p’s should put it at 4400rpm.   Whereas 22s would put it at 4800rpm.   So the question is:  which do I guess first?

I would start with the 22's you'll gain approx. 600rpm with them. Basic rule in 1 pitch moves the rpm's +/- 150 revolutions.

From your numbers, I think the 22's. 

What is the WOT RPM range for the new motor? I like to run to the upper end of the range.

By comparison, On my 220SSi, I run 24's with a 350 MAG/MPI 2.0 ratio B3 drive and see 4800 RPM on a heavy loaded boat and 5000 RPM with a light load. I think 22's are your starting point.

Nows the time to make some friends with Bravo 3's with the props you want to try. A 12 pack may go a long way. Try before you buy.
