I own a E-TEC 150HO, mounted on a ZAR53 Rib.

Vmax is between 85 and 92 km/h, depending on load and prop.
Fastest prop but with too high rpms of 5900-6000 was a Ballisitic 19", now I use a Raker 20" with about 5700-5800 rpm at WOT and a Viper 19", which is 100 rpm lower than the Raker with 1-2 km/h less topspeed.
The 19" BRP Alu Prop is about 3-4 km/h slower than the Raker 20 with same RPM.

I had twin 115 Fichts now onto twin 150 e-tec's. Running the new engines on either 14.75 X 21" alloy props or 14.75 X 17" SS Viper's, get 49knots with the 21" and the 17" are for when i have a full load of divers on board. Still have a couple of tatty old props off the old engines which are free to a good home.

Technically I own a 150 but it probably doesn't have any prop on it yet, it definitely hasn't been wet and I don't have any photos myself yet, so that's probably not going to be much help

However I am told it will have a 19in Viper and probably get about 45kt on a 5.8 Vipermax lightly laden.

I'm running a 115 etec on a 5.5 destroyer. I see 40 knots WOT at 5750 rpm with a 19" viper and a light load. I'm tempted to raise the engine a couple of holes and try a 21"
