Raising the motor hurts your bow lift it will cause boat to run flatter. When you lift the motor up you also cause more stern lift. If boat is solid, trim motor all the way up and push down on lower unit as hard as you can if you see the transom flex any at all the transom is bad. sounds like you have either wrong prop or a worn out prop. Props due wear out and when they due,. you will have performance issues.Also boring a motor oversize does not give it anymore power, if it does it is so minute you will not notice.
