Kiewiet, confirm O-360 is a carbureted engine? If so, you should not fly full throttle due to the 'economizer bleed' in a Marvel Schrebler carb. Reduce throttle slightly and economy and performance increases slightly.

I will find the link to the discussion. Here it is... viewtopic.php?f=9&t=157266&p=1602488&hi ... r#p1602488
