There is no problem revving the engine in neutral. I think most of us assumed the rpms you were reporting were in neutral.

If it revs right up to 3200-3400 in neutral (I suspect it will), you have all the signs/symptoms of being over-propped. That is not good for the engine, so you should change it even if somebody else went around the world like that.
