Heavyweight wakeboard setup for 08' x30 or x45?

I have an 08' X30 with the 6.0L. Does anyone have a good heavy ballast set-up they use for wakeboarding with X30 or X45 they could share? I have a couple 750 bags in the back I use for surfing so would like to incorporate those at least partially.

Prop?
Perfect Pass Settings(Paddle Wheel)? Haven't had much luck getting it consistent.
Ballast amount and ballast locations?
Speed?

on my x45 i do stock full plus 750's in each of the rear lockers and then 280 lb wedges under each of the front seats...run at 23.6 mph with acme 2305 15x12 prop...i usually shorten rope to 70' b/c the wake is so damn wide!

Jamesl runs a similar setup in his 45, full stock on top of that.

It's best to have 3-4 people in the boat, any more and you start to overweight the boat. I'll ride that at 72.5 at 23ish mph

Thanks!

Are you guys still running the stock perfect pass with paddle wheel or the GPS upgrade? Trying to figure out if I'm going to be able to get it adjusted correctly or if I need to go a different route.
