I dnld the latest P-51 from your site the other day. It really cooks, I'll tell you. I was chasing 737s out of Lindbergh Field KSAN with it but I couldn't keep it up for long, the 737 started pulling away pretty quick above 3000' It'll do 385 kts = 440 mph at 25000'. Of course I wanted to get more umpf out of it, so I tinkered with it a little. I reset the boost to 72 inhg instead of the stock 61 in. I also reset the critical altitude--- 30000' instead of 25000'. I think the increase in crit. alt. is more realistic since the P-51 regularly fought at alt. higher than 25000'. I took it up to 30000' and firewalled it. How does 420+ kts = 483 mph sound to ya? I can keep up with the 737s now through 12000', and climb at 5000'+ fpm. It's a blast. shhhhhhhhh! Don't let the Feds know! 😂

Try to get a screenshot, we'd like to see that.

You've really learned how to "goose" up the aircraft haven't you, very cool! Is it always the same one line in the config?

Aye the P-51 is aces, was always my first love plane back in the day when my pop took me to airshows.

I don't know how to do a screen shot and send it. When I tinker with performance I go to the aircraft config files and look for max manifold pressure and reset to what I want ( always remembering what it was origionaly), then I do likewise with the critical altitude setting. I can cruise at 350+kts = 400+mph 30000' at 47 inhg man. pressure and 2700 rpm on the engine. Sure beats the hell out a Mooney, does'nt it? 🙂

I have a friend who wants to get a "little more" out of his Beach Baron, I'll let him know, thanks.
