2016 VLX with the 450 motor


Recommended Posts

Has anyone taken delivery of a 2016 VLX with the 450 motor. Looking at prop options and would like to hear some speed/RPM numbers both ballasted and empty as well as the prop used.

I have the 2015 VLX with the GM LS3. I settled on the ACME 2773 (new sku this past summer). It's a 15" diameter and 13 pitch prop.

Unballasted Numbers:

3500 rpm: 28 mph

3750 rpm: 30 mph

4000 rpm: 32 mph

WOT 5500 rpm: 41+ mph

Keep in mind 2016 has different tranny so RPM with same prop will be higher, roughly 10% higher.

Also 2015 450 was HP not torque, 2016 is supposed to be torque, so 410 is actually just under the 424 to of the Indmar 450 LS3
