[DML] Re: New DeLorean?



Hello.

Eggenfellner aircraft engines in Florida converts 2.5l 4 cylinder and
3.0l cylinder Subaru engines into aircraft engines (different
controller, lighter external parts, reduction gear for propeller).  

They are good engines, in my opinion.  Very quiet.  

I'm also acquainted with, but do not know personally, the gentleman
who is the main pioneer of the Mazda aircraft conversions.  They are
not as numerous than Subaru conversions, it seems.  

My two cents, which you asked for, so please don't flame me for giving
it, is that the PRV is such a good engine (other than that unavoidable
odd-firing problem and the associated drivetrain stress), that neither
the Subaru horizontally opposed nor the Mazda Wankel engines
represents a compelling replacement for it, if you're just looking for
more power.

But the spirit of experimentation?...  That's a great reason to do it.

Rick Gendreau.
