I am a new Master Craft owner and I am really impressed with the boat. I also really dig this forum. I have always owned and been around Correct Crafts and now I will not ever go back. I was wondering how many RPM's the 330 HP LTR motor from 1999 turns at top speed. I know my speedo is not calibrated because it pegs to easily. But the tach is going to 5,300 - 5,500 Rpms. Is this typical? The boat is a Prostar 205V 1999. What is the normal Top speed of this boat and normal RPM at top speed with one passenger and half a tank of gas?
Thanks for any input!!

Don't know for that boat as I run a 351 HO (45.5 mph at 4,600 rpms). Just figured I'd say welcome to a person who lives in my all-time favorite town and kick your post back up to the top. Hope you get out on the Pedernales from time to time.

Mine is running mid 4's and the speedos are dead on, brought out the GPS and got them setup almost perfect yesterday.

The LTR should be propped to turn between 4800 and 5200 at Wide Open Throttle with the boat fully loaded so turning 5300 plus lightly loaded is about right. That engine has an RPM limiter that will not allow it to over-rev. When it hits the RPM limiter it will feel like the engine has an ignition miss. The RPM limiter is set below 5500 so if you are turning 5500 and not hitting the RPM limiter, have your tachometer checked.
