I agree with Matt that windsheild is horrible.
Probably about right with a standard spec 350. Its just rebuilt. That lower unit will scrub off a few MPH as well.

I would think it should be running at least mid 60's. Maybe the big windshield is slowing it down.

Just sent Helmich a message out of curiosity he's running 65-67 depending on prop bone stock power.
