I have given up on the prop from Props, Inc. I sent the prop back for repitching/adjustments many times (so many that I lost count - I think six or eight) and the performance of the prop never really changed. I certainly spent enough money on it to think that I should have gotten more than a nice peice of wood hanging on the wall. In their defense, I'm sure it is hard to tune a prop for an automotive conversion but I would not have guessed that it was this hard.
