Just get an inch or two of pitch taken off the present prop at a prop shop.

"It all has to do with full throttle RPM's. You want to be within about 100 RPM with the throttle at full. If RPM is lower you can go with a one or two inch smaller pitch. Personally, I went from a 3 blade to a 4 blade and finally to a HI Five prop. The Hi Five is fantastic. But you need the right pitch to max out your RPM at full throttle.
