Default 7A performance

Hello, My name is Chad. I have just finished my 7A and have about 10 hrs on it. my engine is a Superior XP IO-360 180hp and the prop is an ACI 2200.

I'm only able to indicate about 135 kts at 3000-4000' WOT (27.5"mp this morning) and 2650 RPM. ? The density altitude has been 3000-4000 feet at my airport and I'm using 800' of runway to get airborne at 1600lbs. Do these numbers seem about right?

This is the first RV that I have flown and my other airplane is a STOL bird so maybe I'm just used to that.
