Bob's Machine Jack Plate Install On 20Ft Aluminum Boat?

I just dropped my boat off at Boat Etc in Freeport and I was wondering for those that have aluminum boats how well did your boat preform after a Jack plate install? I've done my research but I was wondering specifics about each persons boat performance in handling and speed increase. My boat right now tops out at 40-42 MPH reading from my Lowrance depth finder.

I'm hoping it will get to 45Mph but any speed increase is fine with me. Not that it's a major concern but it also would help getting shallower during duck season on the flats without walking a football field in and out of position.
