What is the recommended prop size for a 2000 X5? I also need to know the shaft diameter

Depends on the transmission. If it is a 1:1, then stock prop was a 13x13 with a 1" tapered shaft. If it is a power slot (1.52:1), then the stock prop was probably somewhere around a 14x18 with a 1.125" tapered shaft.

The modern CNC'd props will be sized a little differently apart from the shaft. Give Eric at OJ and Bill at Acme a call and talk to them about your boat, transmission, engine combination as well as what you spend your time doing behind the boat. All of this is relevant to determining what the best prop for your application is. Some will respond that one brand is clearly superior to the other. But what works for one person may not necessarily be the answer for another. Comparing the two (with each of these companies offering a trial period) is the best way to do it.
