What is WOT for your engine. If WOT (wide open throttle) is 3000 then you need to run it at ~2600-2700. If you are running at WOT they you will burn oil and ruin your engine. You must be able to hit WOT in gear under full power, but you must not run there for more than a few minutes. If you can't then you are over propped.
