Sometimes published engine specifications will say X hp at Y rpm.  If you don't 
have that then just use the specified maximum rpm, or maximum sustained rpm, or 
something along those lines.  You would not want to use a "dive rpm" or 
"war/emergency power rpm" number.  For the Mustang I used 3000 (published max 
for merlin 1650), but according to specifications you could spin it up to 
something like 3500+ in a dive without blowing the engine.
