A 2.5 on a p18 should run mid 70,s upwards depending on which engine you have and if it is set up properly.
The other thing you need to take into consideration is offset of the motor to allow for twist in the boat due to torque of the motor.
Anyone who has raced for years knows just how quickly things can go wrong at speed so you would be best to speak to a reputable dealer in your area to find out the best/ safest set up for you.
The boat can always be tweaked for more speed once a good base setting is found.
I am in no way doubting your abilities as a driver but as one of my boats is a p20 that ran a 2.4efi I know how much of a handful they can be.
