I put one on my very first Ranger many moons ago. It was a 320-V with a 115 Johnson and a 13" x 19" SSTII prop. It seemed with a full load of fuel, livewell full, and gear for me and my partner sometimes I had a heck of a time getting on plane. I bought a 6 inch set back mechanical adjusted unit. I think it was made by a company called Hydrodynamics. I set it up with about an inch of lift over stock and it made a huge difference. Really didn't notice much on the top end but the holeshot was much better. I think playing with some props could have gotten me more top end. Make sure if you buy one and have it installed that you get a water pressure gauge with it if you don't already have one. If you get it set to high trying to adjust it to your liking, you can get the water inlet on the lower unit to high out of the water causing the pump to cavitate and you can burn a piston real quick because air begins to accumulate in the water jackets...You want good steady pressure all of the time, if the gauge starts dancing around you are getting air and you need to get off of plane as fast as you can and lower it back down a little if you go mechanical.....
