Dont turn it on when flying while flying on 100% power or more, When you are flying under 100% it should be turned on but keep inmind that it will only kick in when flying on a powerlevel above 100%. Dont use it too much you only have 30 mins of WEP, If you put your engine after those 30 mins again over 100% there's a big chance that youw ill hear your engine making some scratching sounds..
I would say try the manual proppitch.
Set radiator to 2 or 4 and keep the engine on arround 2800-3000 RPM only use WEP in combat or panic http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

With all MW50 equipped planes, the system has to be engaged at low RPM's. The easiest way to do this is to turn it on at startup and forget about it. It will engage automatically above 100% throttle. If you forget and want to turn it on in flight, you will stand a great chance of damaging your engine at higher RPM's.

As for the GM-1 boost on the Bf109 E7/Z, it must not be used under 6500m (I think - it has been a while since I flew that plane, but I am pretty sure it is 6500m) (9000m for the Ta-152, and I am positive of that) It is for high altitude boost, and will roast your engine in thicker (Low alt) air. GM-1 is Nitros Oxide and the added compression associated with using NO2 will burn a hole in a piston faster than you can say, "Oops!"

Hope that helps.

would only add that the GM-1 on the TA-152 will not fry your engine if you go below the rated alt (9000) with it switched on, unlike the 109 E7/Z. You just wont see the performace increase - better to switch back to MW-50

This however has nothing to do with the K4 - sorry, just an addition to what Fehler said above. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/784.gif
