Question Baja sport 280

Just picked up a baja sport 280. I bought the boat with Hydrolocked motors and I am building motors and having them tuned by Dean Nickerson. Each motor is going to put out 476 HP. What kind of speed should I expect out of this boat. Also, anything to watch out for or advice while boating, propeller size, trim issues, etc. Any advice will help.

thank you!

Mid 70's with that power. Probably around a 26 pitch lab prop. Boat does not need alot of trim.
