I mis read the question LOL anyways the turbo makes a different sound signature than a straight one does. they also seem to start pushing sooner.

Not sure which one midnight is refering to, I thik he is talking about staggered not turbo. Turbo is staggered and stacked.

i just replaced a staggered warp with a Q sensenich.the Q pushes sooner for sure, also quiet. the staggered warp gives that big 3 blade effect if pitched up alot. but for a heavier boat, the Q is three times the prop. if i was to run a warp again, on a light boat, it would be a staggered set-up. i don't know how a stacked stagger would compare to the straight stagger. use up more room in cage at the very least. :dontknow:
