Default Irvine .53 Which Prop for speed?

I know the Irvine is not in the league of Rossi, jett etc.. But I am installing one in my GP Patriot and was wondering:

What size prop would yield the highest speeds?

Thanks for reading!

I use to have a Irvine a while ago. and it turn a 9X6 pretty good (.40)

Start with a 8.5X8 D1 apc up to a 9X7NN D1 apc or MA 9x8 cut down to 8.5 My Webra .50 turns it pretty good
on a Mac pipe.

What muffer are you using?

You might try an APC 9 1/2x8 or 10x7 cut down to 9 1/2x7.

You should have said you were in a hurry, I'm slow at typing. I run a Irvine 53 but with just a stock muffler with a 10X8 APC on a PC-9, not much help I know , I have a pipe but if I fly it any faster than it goes now I think it will have flutters and other issues. If I were to put the pipe on I would probably start with a 10X8 cut down to 9.5 and see how it does, good luck.
