  • Triton 240 LTS with Verado 350 prop?

    I just acquired a 2018 Triton 240 LTS with 350 Verado. It came with an Enertia Eco 21. So far I’m getting max rpm of 5500 at 50 mph mostly loaded in flat water trimmed way up. Hole shot and handling are excellent otherwise. I plan to bottom paint soon and probably put a small t top on it this winter. Any recommendations for prop or should I stick with this prop and get a new one once I see what happens with the t top and paint?
    Thanks for the help!.

    Here was a guy on my old forum that tried a few props, was running 50-53 MPH with a 250 Verado

    I would bet money your running on 5 cylinders cause you have a bad coil.
    If so, and you fix it, you'll gain about 1000 RPM and about 10 MPH and be much happier with that 21 Rev 4.

    Unless there is growth on the bottom of the hull. If so, that is likely holding you back.

      Thanks for your help Ken. The 2006 hull is a somewhat different hull than the 2018. I don't know if it makes a difference as far as prop performance. They say the new one runs on a pad, but both hulls ride great. I heard from one person online that he was getting 58 mph at 6000 Rpm with the same hull and motor and an Eco 19. Also heard from one guy who has a 260 LTS and is happy with an Eco 19. Of course, these are internet reports so can't verify. I have read a little about bad coils. Even though this motor won't get high rpms, it runs great overall as far as power. Occasionally will get stuck turning over and not starting, but always starts the second time. I am not sure if that would be a sign of a bad coil or not.
      My buddy has a Rev 4 21 on his 24 yellowfin I can try. Thanks again.

        the motor will run smooth as silk with a bad coil. No codes, no alarms, no vibration.
        it will just be slow and low on RPM. fuel economy will be worse then it should be also.

          I have a 2017 260 LTS with the 350 vrod. It came with the 19p eco and I like the fuel mileage but the 19p rev 4 is faster and better overall. The Eco prop doesn't lift the entire boat like the rev 4. I am getting 53 mph at 5900-6000 rpm with the rev 4. The eco would only turn about 5700 rpms at 50-51 mph. Also this is with the jackplate all the way down. I had a an 07' 220 lts and it also liked the rev 4 19p even after the Simon reflash to 340hp. It would run 55 with the ttop and bottom paint. For whatever reason it seems like this new hull is faster loaded than just me and no water in the livewell. Also my 260 has no ttop and no bottom paint.

          Forgot to add that I have had a conversation with Terry Lacoss who is on the Triton pro team. He said he ran the Eco 19p on his 260 but his rpm and numbers were exactly what I am getting. He now runs a 240 Lts and it's a little faster but not much. He basically said when Earl Bentz resigned the hull on the LTS, the focus was on the ride quality and not speed and that you can't have a bay boat that take big water like the lts but still runs 60+ mph.

            Ahh, I didn't realize the hull was different now.
            Sounds like a 19 Q4 or Revolution 4 would be the way to go

              I also forgot to add I also ran a 17p Rev 4 and hole shot and acceleration was amazing but it would only run 50-51 at 6350 rpm. Tried a 17p Eco prop as well and it would get to 6000 rpms but it was slower than the 17 rev 4 with less handling and lift.

              The Rev 4 is so good around the docks I can't see a better option for this hull.
