Ring 21 setup help needed

Hi all
im new here and have a few questions about the right setup for my ring 21 b
My engine is a 2.4 Mercury Racing Bridgeport.
Have a manual 5,5" setback on the boat.
The Propshaft was 3 1/2 " below the keel.
The boat runs 90km/h with 6800 rpm with much trimm.
Using a 26" Chopper 3 Blade.
i reached the height limit with my manual lift on the setback.
Yesterday i raised my engine up 2 holes. So for now i im 1 " below the keel.
What do you think about thios height with the chopper. should i go more up?
I cant test this weekend and on land is better to adjust the on the water.
I have 2 more Props to test.
a 27" Cleaver
and a 22" Chopper.
My Gear is 2:1 and i habve a nosecon with low water pickup.

Heres a Picture of the Engine (an older one without setback)

Hey Menix, also here on BM, welcome... There is a CLE unit underneath you BP, not a lower with nosecone. Engine height is trail and error, a waterpressure gauge is a must in this case! A hydrolift will be ideal...

A chopper is a good prop for this setup, will give you a great bowlift. This is what a ring needs. But a 4 blade chopper style will carry the bow a bit more. I don't know the perfect setback for your model, but Ring recommends 15" for the 21C. I think you need to sell that engine, to me :p
