Default 2018 DF-250 AP Redline??

Have the above Engine on a 2005 Grady 226 Seafarer.Running a 16X17 Suzuki prop. Just broke a 100 hrs. and seems to have picked up some RPMS..Dealer set the Redline at 6K rpms from what I was told....Question I have is....If the Redline is set at 6K,will the Engine go past it OR Not go past it. Reason I ask is I would think My Boat would be able to run a 16X18.5.....I have the Engine raised almost all the way Up,only 1 more hole left...I can get to 6K with the 17" prop.

The motor will go higher then 6000 rpm, no one can set a governor it’s simply what the propping allows. The motor will redline and over rev at 6400. I would stay with your current prop if you can achieve 6000 wot, going larger will hinder your hole shot and over work the motor when loaded down.
