That sounds exactly like what N891JF does, using a Sterba 54x52 prop on it. I usually fly at 9,500' or 10,500' turning about 3050 to 3200 rpm, depending on whether or not I'm in a hurry. The faster I run the engine, the more oil mist is generated from the "Force One" prop seal. It's not a big deal, but after about three hours at wide open throttle there's just enough mist on the canopy to notice a little haze. I'm not in the mood to pull the prop flange off to change the seal, so 3050 rpm is what I usually try to fly at.
