Really good preflight. I had to abort my first takeoff after paint because of a clogged injector - which occurred on the takeoff roll AFTER two runups. I have a constant speed prop, and did one runup to 1800, taxied to the runway where I did another runup to about 2000, and neither one of those dislodged the piece of whatever it was in my injection system. But takeoff power moves more fuel - and then it turned loose and I lost a cylinder coming through about 40 knots.

Be ready for anything.
