I wounder if your O320 is not making full power?

You can have a metal fixed pitch prop re-pitched.

I would go through the engine and make sure compression (leak down) is good, Oil analysis is good, plugs good, air filter....

Just did an annual and compressions are 78/80 or better. Cold.

Static rpm is good for the prop I have I think Iím just heavy. Both me and the airplane. Lol
