2000RPM min governed valued (now confirmed for DB601 from RLM docs).
Remembering of course that the actual determinant of RPM is throttle position

One further point is that in game a Static runup at 1.3ATA will only get you 2000RPM. You should be able to get 2300RPM at zero forward speed.

With these values in mind the Sim needs a little tweaking. Easily done from an instrumentation/animation point of view but the power output would need to reflect these values as well.
Great stuff IvanK, you're a star mate!
