Default 210hp

Originally Vans had a 210hp engine option. Continental IO-360 6 cylinder engine. As I understand it, that engine option wasn't very popular, so they dropped support. A 200hp turboprop, is probably quite comparable to a 210hp piston engine. It probably takes more than 10hp to overcome cooling drag that's absent with a turboprop!

I was thinking it would be great for a 7/8.

You will spend more time and effort FWF than assembling the rest of the 10.

That 210hp is installed in their demonstrator that I used for my transition training back in March. Granted there were only two of us in the plane, I felt like it performed really well. We didnt do a cross country or load it up with people, but it seemed like there was certainly enough power there.

I wouldn’t dissuade anyone from building what they want, but as you take this journey be prepared for the challenge with insurance. Paul posted this great video in another thread: https://youtu.be/cVNqmE33NTU

You should read the Kitplanes article on the turbine RV-10 very carefully.
https://www.kitplanes.com/turbine-powered-rv-10/

Compared to the standard Lycoming IO-540 the turbine is a much more expensive engine, much thirstier engine (climb and cruise) and thus less range, custom engine mount and cowling, no faster.

Not sure what the attraction is unless you just can't get Avgas or Mogas.
