In Flacon4 the pylon for the 120 caused more drag than the pylon for the AIM9 so I always put the 120 on the wingtips.
I'm not sure of the validity of this.

Yeah my memory is bad.

I did 2700 RPM at FT which got me to 260IAS at 45MP and 3000 got me to 270IAS at 53.5MP.

Really you get up to 270 at 3000RPM at 30k? You know you start losing pieces of your aircraft at 300mph IAS lol.
