Re: Prop Settings for older SM with Volvo/MaxProp

Bill Kinney

Danny, I hear you, except… the turbo is new.  The exhaust elbow is new, and clean.  The boost pressure is spot on Volvo’s spec (I measured it) the waste gate opening is in spec.  When going upwind, the engine will NOT climb up into the turbo boost zone if the RPM is limited to 2800.  Yet it generates full power and speed if I allow the max RPM to climb to 3350.  

What problems would you predict I’ll see by running at this prop setting?
