Brandon, we'd just have to try it. It's easy enough to buy a few props, bolt that motor to a test stand, and see what we get as far as amps goes.
Exactly.
I flew an 14+ lb 80" AT-6 on a 245Kv Power 160 on 6s with a 20x15 prop. Plenty of speed and thrust. With your higher Kv and 13" pitch, your pitch speed will be similar. The 3 blades will help with thrust, as long as amp draw is not too high. That model only had about 70-80 watts per lb.
Here's a vid:
