Motor was running fine. On plane running 3800-4000 rmp and the motor bogs down and was get over 2000 rpm. It starts and idles fine. I pulled the plugs and all look ok. Any suggestions to try ? Thanks

Also, No alarms went off

Make sure it has spark on all six. Check this first and let us know back.

not sure but it's worth checking, empty the fuel filter or put a new one on.

When was the last time you changed your primer bulb and fuel line?

Ethanol fuels destroy the old type fuel line. It can cause the line to break apart internally and collapse.

New lines from tank to motor, and a new primer bulb should be installed immediately if they have not been updated.

Bulb and fuel lines are maybe 3 months old. Getting fire on all cylinders. Didn't pull the fuel filter, Going to let mechanic pull it and see what's in it, if anything ,so he can go from there. Going to put it in the shop before I tear into something I have no business messing with ! Thanks for all the suggestions . Hope its something simple...
