Nice

Yes, that's why I am very curious how an RV-9 would do with a Rotax 915is which continues to produce 140 hp up to 15,000 feet. Great for high density altitude days, or flying out west.

I'm curious as to what an RV-9 would do with a Rotax 915is; 140HP but also with the turbo. Lighter overall airplane, and potentially more power and performance up high.
