I am currently running a 21" 'High Rake' stainless prop from Steel Developments. Although it didn't really increase the top end speed, it's a bit more resilient, and it doesn't chip from general small debris on the river like the ali prop that came with the engine was starting to.
The wiring when I had the boat was pretty tidy - I messed it all up for about 3 months, and then sorted it all out with proper length wires and zip tied it all together to make it solid after that. There isn't a great deal of room in there, purely because the battery is a bit on the big side - it may be large, but I think it's worth it though.
Try and avoid having to do anything that requires removal of the console if you can - although the thing does come off the deck, it takes about 200 small wedges to lift it up to avoid damaging the deck.... the console is sealed down with sikaflex (in my case anyway), and then the screws go through that into the deck to hold it solid. I had to use the telehandler from work to lift the console cos it weighs a fair amount.
