Default Finally, it?s alive (again)

I?ll post more soon in the engine section, but I?m just pleased right now to announce that my airplane is alive again, rocking a freshly repaired and upgraded engine.

My original intent was to simply upgrade from 7:1 to 8.5:1 pistons, but after finding a cam issue, it?s now got a new cam, crank bearings, freshly inspected, ground, and sb?d crank, 9:1 pistons, dual pmags instead of one...

After the engine shop ran me through several check / heat and cool cycles, I got to get it in the air again for the first time in two months!

I definitely need to repitch my GA200 prop, and I?m excited to see what kind of gains I?ve actually received!

Can?t say enough good stuff about my home field engine shop. These guys were GREAT!
