Default Anybody covert a S.T. .51?

I'm looking to get a little more torque and the ability to swing a little more prop. The engine is in a profile bipe and it has ulimited vertical, but I'm looking for a little more power for hovering.
Do you guys think that this engine when converted will swing a 13x4 or 14x4 APC at about 9,500 RPM? That will put me close to a Saito .82 without the expense.

My SuperTigre .51 turns a 12x6 two blade at 10,100 rpm as a Glow and a 12x6 three blade at 10,100 as a Diesel

It should have no problem swinging that 13x4 then, ya think? The midrange torque should increase right?
