Default engine swap.

thinking of swapping out engines till my new sport pipe arrives but would a rossi 53 with pylon UT muffler and a 8.75x9w prop pull a tigershark pretty fast or would it be better to change out the UT muffler for a sport muffler and run a bigger prop?

Default RE: engine swap.

It's been a long time since I had my DC Tigershark but I think I settled on a 9.25x7 prop (a cutdown 9.5x7) I was running a OS VF46-Pumped and Piped. The UT Muff should help, just don't go up on the pitch too much, all the Rossi's I had liked to rev.
