I have started building a two place parasol with a recommended HP of 65-100 hp, so in looking for a suitable engine I am now down to a couple directions of which to take, either a cont. 65-90 hp(for low maintenence and cost) or a subaru EA 81 or the turbo, does anyone have any experience with these engines that could give me a run through of what and how these lil subaru engines would suit my needs, and what to look for or what to stay away from.
Are they as reliable as I have read ?  How much fuel burn ?  Are they tough and sturdy and ready for a PSRU and prop ?  and finally, would you rather have a cont. or a subaru pulling you through the air ???

Thanks and keep your wheels down,
Chris
