My experience as a pilot (and mechanic) leads me to wonder why the throttle (most aircraft) seems to be rigged to the carb with a loose rubberband? When you chop the throttle the MAP should drop like a rock, regardless of boost. (eh?) /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Also, how does one activate the turbo in the p-47? All i can get is 50 in. and turbo lever in OFF pos. I MUST HAVE 72 INCHES! (please?) /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Thanks to everyone for their concern. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
