Bob, Larry, Andy,
Thank you for your numbers. Very impressive for a NA engine. The stock NA C182 dies around 12k. Even the T182T can’t do those numbers in the upper teens, only about 165kts at 18k. And nowhere close to those fuel flows.

Default -10 Performance

Standard D4A5 and Hartzell 2-blade package from Vans, 2 Slick Mags. Weight around 2600 in this example. I've since switched to dual EI and have gained about 3kts in the teens with the extra advance.
