Default Do I get more RPM or MP? (E,F,J models)

This is not a simple yes/no answer. With a constant speed propeller, you will not get more RPM or Manifold Pressure; however your engine will be running more efficiently. The increase in efficiency creates more horsepower and torque at a given RPM/MP. The governor will compensate for this increase by further pitching the prop, therefore giving you a speed increase. If you choose to fly your old airspeeds you will save fuel because less power is needed to obtain those speeds.

In short, no RPM or MP increase, but it will feel like you have more MP available.
