MAP never sinks below 4.9inHG

Manifold input pressure never sinks below 4.9inHG except when ambient pressure is below 4.9. At or below 4.9 there is no change in MAP when changeing throttle position.

Furthermore setting manifold_efficiency_table to values below 0.2 for low end throttle positions doesn't seem to do anything ever, compared to 0.2.

Hello @GutsherrBus9

That's something we changed for SU11.
We have added parameters to allow more control over manifold pressure, included a manifold_pressure_min that will take priority over ambient pressure if inferior.

Just btw.: I can't see this in the flighting documentation although it already works in the beta.
https://docs.flightsimulator.com/flighting/html/Content_Configuration/SimObjects/Aircraft_Si1mO/engine_cfg.htm

Also "engine.cfg" in the flighting doc should be "engines.cfg".
