I'm assuming you are referring to "whale-tails" or hydrofoils that are placed on the foot of outboard motors to help make them plane out faster, right?
If so, then I think it depends a lot on the size of the boat and motor and the type of hydrofoil used. I have one on my 15hp and a 14 foot FisherMarine boat and it really doesn't do me any good that I can tell. Not enough power in the first place I think.
If this is what you are talking about then maybe someone else can give you better info than I can.
