But that's irrelevant: at sea level the wastegate setting* (or
boost input, see below) should be clamping it.  In order to reach
the POH MP numbers at altitude, where the solution values are
specified, you need this value.

If you want to use a lower than real-life MP, you will need to
re-specify the cruise parameters to an altitude where the engine
is developing real-life power.

What's wrong with the BOOST control input for this purpose?  The
second stage turbine is a manual level.  Just map the first stage
to a boost of 0.5 (or whatever is appropriate).

I'm just trying to reach the manifold pressures that the airplane
is specified as reaching in its POH.  What values are you using
for cruise MP?

Seriously: the supercharger in the Mustang *does* multiply the
manifold pressure by this value.  Are you sure it doesn't?
