There was a P21 / 2.5 280 that ran 82 at windermere a few years back, and the 18 is a fair bit quicker for the same power, if conditions allow

i have the performance record at windermere with my phantom 19 with a 280 efi. it ran 92 mph. the prop you propose will be crap. the prop you need is a raker,and i still have my one if you would like to try it.

i know it will be hard to believe but it was quite stable and we think it would have faster if we had the next size prop. ask jackie hunt, of 4litre rib fame, as she was my co pilot

Roofer - I reckon it'll be bouncing off the rev limiter if it has one with that prop - it'll swing at least a 26. Mind you do you know what it's been tuned to rev to?

Roofer, where did the engine come from?
i'm asking because i'm not aware of any software available over here (uk) to increase the rev limit hence not alot more power can be gained from a 280
Johnny knows alot more about it than me so its over to him.

There are 2 versions of the 280. A consumer one and a race one the consumer one is limited to 7500 and the race one is 8200. I think you only get the race one over here though. If its on a 15" or an offshore mid it will be the race offshore version 8200rpm, assmuing the power heads never been swapped. If you want mega power and revs its best to swap to 260 or Drag electronics and change to a 56PSI (black) fuel reg and ECU. Its not just the limiter on the 280, the igniton cant hadle more than about 8500rpm. Dont know anything about circuit racing but is top speed everything ir do you need acceleration out of the corners too? There was a ski boat in weston (Palpataions, P21 lightweight) that ran 87mph gps with a tuned 280 towing a skier.
