1996 pro star lt1 top speed

Iíve had this 96 pro star for about 4 years now, I live in Denver (high elevation) Iíve been trying to get it to hit 40mph but the most I can get is 37 mph, it has the lt1 Corvetee engine in it, the reason why I need that extra 3 mph Is for barefoot get I can get up on short rope or long rope but need some more speed for the tricks and to be able to do one footers any way if anyone has any ideas what can be done to gain that 3mph or more lol please let me know ow

Contact MC, Indmar or Technical Services to find out if they have a high altitude calibration for that boat.

What prop is on it, and has it been repaired?

At a minimum, change the prop. I was able to hit a good 43-45mph in my LT1 205 (94) at 6000'. I changed my prop from the factory one to an OJ CNC prop. Maybe more efficient, I don't know. Gained better hole shot and better top end, too.

At 2500', I can get 48mph (in Idaho).

I am not sure what size prop is on it Iíll have to take it apart to be able to tell but it sounds like something can be done for sure!

You mean as if the prop has been repaired?

We had a '96 LT1 as well and were lucky to get 43mph near sea level. I'd call Eric at OJ and have him fab a new prop for elevation. That's your best immediate solution IMO.

Ski-me,
Which prop did you go with?
Iím @ 4,000 feet in Idaho.
Ď96 Prostar LT1 and really want to replace my original OJ 13x13 with a new CNC prop.

Hitting 43mph on gps @ 4600 rpm.
Following this thread with interest.
Thanks
