Sorry to keep asking dumb questions, I just want to make sure I order the right thing!
It probably would help, but you have to worry about exceeding the max WOT RPMs if you run a prop with too low a pitch. The stock prop that came on that is a 14x18. I think that 14x19.5 is likely too much prop. OTOH, I don't think 13.5 x 16 is likely to be enough prop.

I would never order a prop without first talking directly to either Eric at OJ or Bill Weeks at Acme. Those guys are really smart.
