I stick to the suggested power settings all times, or even below (as I usually don't fly her fully packed with passengers). I'll wait for the future updates and see how I need to adjust my flying habits with the prop-o-tronic :)

But just recently I encountered some new behaviour regarding the heat exchange: As days are getting colder (outside temp below zero), I used the carburator heat more often. It seems that this extends the time until I get a problem with the heat exchange. But when it happened, this time it was going into the other direction; the engine back was getting really really cold… like minus few thousand degrees. uhh
