Default P300rx

I just received my P300RX from service. Software/firmware's were updated.
The engine starts fine. Acceleration and deceleration ok.
But, if I bring the power up when the engine is decelerating in the lower RPM range, It starts spitting out blue flames and the EGT rises. I guess the engine is stalling at that point.
Acceleration curve too steep?
Any advice?

Thanks,

What is the throttling set to? Normal, fast or very fast? What installation? Tail pipe with what gap between the tail one and tailpipe steel tube?

Thanks Dave,

I have 3/4 of an inch to the ss pipe and a bellmouth installed. Its a ss Y pipe in a F18.
I do not know the response settings for the acceleration, i can't seem to find them in the settings.

I guess I found the throttle respond.
“FullThrResponse” was set to fast. I changed it to normal.
Thise are the only 2 options I can choose from.
”IdleThrResponse” was set to normal. I had to change that to slow and that actually solved the problem.
i have to say, that really reduced the spool-up time a lot! Maybe to much.
You think increasing the distance from cone/pipe would help also?

Thanks Dave.
