Would this configuration be compatible with Swift UL94 or GAMI G100UL fuels?
What is the horse power increase? What is the new TBO? How much for the overhaul?
Any data yet?
This would be ab outstanding upgrade for my 59 o300a at overhaul.. I will definitely keep an eye on your progress.
Excited to hear the results! I would be an early adopter of this mod once approved. Love my 172G but a few more HP would be fantastic.
I’m keeping an eye on this. I’ll need an overhaul in the next couple of years. Would love to get some more HP at the same time.
Put me on the list! I’ve wanted to do this for years!
I'm happy to put it on our 58 172 and flight test it for you. 🙂
I’m ready! Deciding between selling mine and moving to something faster or waiting for this to happen!
Yep, I'm watching as well, my 0300a is currently past TBO but running great .. wanting to do this for my 170b
This is awesome Chris! I will definitely do this if you make it available. I have two cores here that will need an overhaul in the near future. We have another third aircraft engine whose owner is also interested.
Please keep us updated, I know these things can take a long time to get approved. 😎 Keep up the good work.
This is really exciting to see for all the ol’ o300 powered planes! Any chance something like this will be done for the o200s in the near future??
Is this something my local A&P would be able to install after any necessary work to cylinders?
Will this be applicable to the A model O300?
Apart from high compression pistons, what other modifications are you planning for this engine?
How are things progressing with the O300 increased HP mod. Is it on the back burner? I've got a still flying one that a few hundred over TBO. Would love to do the STC you are working on in lue of the Lycoming STC... Other than not getting a CS prop your mod just makes better sense to me.
Smart move! I'm sure you get emails on "is it done yet?" all the time! Ha
