As of now, the Iowa and Montana has the following engine power and in-game speed:

 

Iowa, Stock Engine: 172k shp, 28.8kts

Iowa, Upgraded Engine: 212k shp, 33kts

Montana, Stock Engine: 172k shp, 30kts

 

It's seem against the logic that the Montana, which has more displacement and in-game hitpoints, can sail faster than the Iowa with the same 172k shp engine. So I suggest that it would make more sense to change the Montana's engine power increased from 172k shp to 212k shp without changing her in-game speed. This might seems unhistorical because Montana only has 172k shp historically, but she also have unhistorical speed of 30kts (in contrast to 28kts historically) so it would be a fair game.

Oh, you would be surprised.

 

That being said, I've also found references to Montana being able to sail at 30 knots, as well as 28 knots.
