Re: Prop for a Stock 5.3 with a 2.7 Ballistic box?

I have a 5.3 liter on a 16 by 8 trail boss with a 2.3 belt drive swinging 84 inch 3 blade r prop it goes just about any where I point it. Jmo adding a cam to 5.3 will only gave you about 450 hp at the most. So a 78 inch 3 blade should work good

Re: 2nd Class Airboater ?

Hasbeen. I don't think there is a 2nd class airboater. I think its if you own one are not. Though there is great debate if you have aircraft or carmotor :stirpot: But in my eyes if you own one your first class.
