    My three blade props were good for my wide open throttle rpm (4800)so I dropped 1" in pitch and my wide open rpm is still 4800 with a dirty bottom so it worked out good. Had 14" x 20 pitch 3 blade stainless replaced with 14 1/8" x 19 pitch 4 blade stainless. my motors are 4.3 LX which have a weber 4 barrell on them and are rated at 180 HP each so if your HP is different you might need to adjust a little. Best thing I did to that boat, low speed handling is greatly improved, gets on plane quicker, can run slower speed and still stay on plane and fuel usage has declined so over all am happy with switch and I ran these new props all summer so I put them thru the test.
