Thanks Dan. If the weather behaves I should be able to gather this data tomorrow. I was speaking with another builder here that suffered the same issue. Lower than "expected" flow on takeoff and 420+ CHT in the climb. He too thought he would have to get the servo recalibrated, but after 5 hours of operation, he noticed a significant drop in the CHT, to the point it no longer passes 400degF in climb, so he never adjusted the servo and is now happy with its operation.
I'll report back shortly with data.
