 What rpm's you turning? Is that speedo or gps? If it's an EFI Merc, redline is 5600 rpm. On that boat, you're runnng pretty good if it's a true 60 mph. Not saying it can't be tweaked just a tad more.

 I ran a 361 (same hull) with a 150. A 5" to 6" JP will help along with going to a 23" Tempest. It seems all Rangers run better with a three blade prop and they love the Tempest. I would expect to see a 2-3 mile pick up depending on load
