I have to ask why I see so many RV-9/9A builds installing 360 engines when the recommended maximum is a 320? You still should not exceed Vne, and it adds weight and fuel burn. The only advantage I can see would be on climb performance if you live up in Leadville. Am I missing something. Would like to know as I plan out a -9A. Thanks!
