    Most guys i run with that like to "wring out" their Rangers,run a Tempest or Fury, depends on how high on the plate you run the motor(high=Tempest low=Fury). A Ranger needs all the bow lift you can give it!

    May be to much plate for the boat and mother ? A6-8 would be better with a 25p Tempest plus at 3 .50 below pad . to get the rpm up a tad . Rise the motor a tad 1/4 at a time until u lose speed or water pressure?
