I have a 2003 Outback LS.I run the standard 13by 13 , 3 blade prop.I have 2 but I wrecked one.I found a decent deal on a Federal,13 by 12,4 blade prop.What kind of difference will I see as far as RPM's,holeshot,wake,and fuel economy.Any ideas?

Will be slightly slower, should be better holeshot, and the debate continues on the fuel economy. RPM's will increase also.

There is not a drastic difference in pitch here. The lower pitch 4 blade should give better hole shot and cost you a mph or two at the top end. If you carry large loads or lots of ballast and don't run at high speeds too much it is probably a good thing. If you run 3-4 miles up to your ski/riding area at high speed every time like I do you may wan to pass on it. The increase in RPM should be pretty minor too.
