Diesel...Again Austro Diesel Engine 170 HP


Recommended Posts

I have read it is a machine developed 'in house' to replace the troubled Thielert. A small case of Pricetagius Incredibilius involved, if you can buy one. Of course, by the time I'm ready for a motor you may be able to buy them at the corner shop...

Yea, Spod. But who cares what it costs when the manuf wont even sell to an experimental aircraft. Certificated engine replacement. Well, at least Thielert wouldnt. 170hp is pretty anemic for a MarkIV. Be great for a Cozy III though. I'll say this, that Bulent IMHO really created something with that CozyIII he widened at the hips and IP and put the 360 into. That is a groovy bird. Fast, and if you are just looking for side by side seating with no two up in back but a lot of luggage room. Dang, it is hard to beat. A hopped up compression 175 horse 320, instead of a 180hp 360, would fit right and be awesome. If this diesel ever showed up and could be bought, that would be a fine PP for a III. My.02

Now think about it...wouldn't you rather LIVE your life, rather than watch someone else's, on Reality T.V.?

Get up off that couch!!! =)
