Very interesting. Similar to my Moto Guzzi V65's engine, but with the promise of more efficency and reliability.


After lots of research into adapting car or motorcycle engines for my plane, it turns out (after adding radiator and PSRU) that none was nearly as light as the Jabiru.

160 hp (120HP at 75% per RAA???) Current as of less than a week ago...


From http://www.airventure.org/news/2012/120728_sci-powers-up-at-airventure.html


"This engine was developed over the last six months and assembled over the last six weeks for AirVenture display. The four-cylinder engine on display provides 160 hp at 195 pounds with an introductory price of $12,500."


reading further a stunning bit of engineering and electronics with separate ECU's for injection and ignition for each cylinder!


Note that it is a Chinese company that has bought out a UK company "shell" of a deceased estate.
