So I lined up the runway sat at idle did my departing call ,opened the throttle and she bogged? so quick back off to idle where she cleared opened throttle to full SLOW,and away I went flew a short circuit but definatly revs moving up and down 100-600 rev drop?

    Tim,
    You have made many changes trying to get some semblance of smooth running. It could have been the exhaust all along so when you fitted the new exhaust, did you return all other adjustments to original positions?
