    15 spline? That would mean 25, 27, or 29 SRX. The first two are rare, the 29 too much pitch. Good choice if available in the right pitch.

    Negative its a fishin mid and i did play with vented props on my old hull that did similar. It wasn't so bad on my 135 but this 200efi on over hubs is like launching a RWD car with summer tires on icey roads. Its very difficult to get it to plane out plus this whole rig is new to me last year so not much seat time doesnt help either. Once up on plane I like the chopper best thus far though. I also need it to be quiet so Im working on sorting out a cut out type mid that I can open or close on the fly.

    You can relieve the exhaust on the lower and leave the liner in the can. It will still be quiet at idle. It's not much difference when you're on plane...

    True. I asked about where how to drill mids before and seemed it was too risky because they break off so I stopped thinking about it. Where do you suggest relieving the lower?
