Have your friends slow down a little. My 150HP O-320, wooden FP prop, RV-6 is well capable of flying all the FFI prescribed procedures. Granted, the pilot is working hard (probably harder than the CS O-360 drivers in the formation) but thatís just another challenge to overcome with hard work and perseverance. Spend the money on gas instead of firewall forward changes-it will provide a dividend of making you a better pilot.

My O-320-D2J does have a mount on the case for a governor but will need to find out if it can support a CS prop or not. Are there other options as I have seen electric CS props but have never talked with anyone whom has one.
