What is your RPM wide open? Also how is your holeshot?

Big hub props have been known to limit the exhaust on those motors on light, fast boats, a switch to a small hub prop may help. Also some of these need the throttle position sensor readjusted....http://www.screamandfly.com/showthread.php?139959-1996-Mercury-225-EFI-at-W-O-T

I used to have a 200v with a 200 mercury.6" jackplate set at 3.25" bp. The best prop I found was a 26 trophy, it ran 5600-5700 rpms at 68 mph gps.the holeshot was alittle slow with a load, but overall i liked the way it performed. I never tried a fury on it but I bet it would be good.
