I may add that what I said above will prob work if as soon as it lifts off you reduce to cruise power for IGE tests. The reason is the thrust line will assist in countering the usual nose down trim IGE and if the power is too much it would over power the OGE nose down trim. Hopefully after a few trials you might figure out the correct power setting. Trimming down to counteract power induced pitch up may result in instability. Because of this it may be a handful OGE because any power increase may cause an abrupt climb, so a set and forget power management style might be best, at least until your muscle memory is tuned.
