I got the same prop in a 74 x 74 for an O-360 RV6 under construction. Great to see such stunning performance data. I'm a little concerned with the length of my prop. Van's recommends 72 inch max...

Another option?

Any comments on the Avionics Hangar dvd? This seems to be the same thing that Stein has been promising, but it's available now. Feel free to PM me if you prefer. Thanks.

Bill,
I'm making a case for 160 HP over 150 HP O-320. My assumption is that 160 HP engine burning 91 octane autofuel will get more miles per gallon than 150 HP burning 87 octane autofuel if both are...
