Default Interesting idea.

Seems like a neat idea, but consider that most RV3s have issues with aft CG, so the weight reduction up front might require serious mount/cowl modifications to get the weight forward enough to counteract this. I'm not even near ready to install an engine in my 3 build, but I am watching the development of these new engines...
