Is installation similar to the methods used for the molded "Steve Dentz" version?
Thanks,

We think it can be retrofitted onto some 914-style cowling installations, depending on how they were originally installed, but we haven't done that yet. It appears that 912-style cowlings would have to be replaced. We've developed a 914-style lower cowling with a radiator scoop that should be a good replacement for 912 lower cowlings, and we're developing a "universal" upper cowling to go with the windshield.

Well, let me backtrack on that. I just tried to put the back part of a 912 upper cowling on N570L. I thought there would be a big problem in compatibility of the corners with the new boot cowl, but it came out surprisingly well. We 'll see if we can make this work with a 912 cowling.

My new EpEX Yamaha engine has made it from Norway to Ohio, I sure hope it makes it to Nampa today or tomorrow.

Gee Steve, I wish I would have know it was going to land in Ohio. Moving2Time, Blue Max, and I would have scheduled a "Road Trip" and brought it to you! :wink:

I can't wait to see it run.

I finally got my new Edge Performance Yamaha EPeX engine and it is as awesome as I was hoping it would be!!
I’ve never been in an airplane that accelerates like this does, it makes incredible power and thrust! It’s a lot of work getting it all installed and the cowling all figured out and all that’s involved in this short time but I think I’m gonna make it to Oshkosh with it. If for some reason I just don’t feel like it’s safe to make the trip with then I will be going in Yeehaw 6, just like last year.
