Will turning WEP, MW50 etc. on at high throttle damage the engine if I have complex engine management off?

If it is it would seem counter-intuitive to me. Have you tried it?

I can't seem to damage the engine at all, no matter what I do. Would the engine be damaged immediately, or would it take some time?

I'm not sure that the effects of WEP other than increased power + temparature are modelled in IL-2, some people say it is dangerous to turn some on at high throttle settings, but I personally havn't noticed anything.

You could damage by leaving it on until your engine blows I suppose though /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
