rviglierchio Posted November 1, 2009 Share Posted November 1, 2009 I fly a canard with an O-320 and 4 separate exhaust pipes. Somewhere in my reading I came to the understanding that this was about the best setup I could have. I'm not sure if this has to do with the pusher setup, the cowl constrictions or what. I just had a conversation with a guy that used to get over 300 mph at sea level in his Formula One racer at Reno and what he said pretty much convinced me the four pipe setup is the worst for HP and the 4 into 1 they used was worth a lot of HP. I know there are some after market setups like this for certified aircraft so that tends to make me think he's got good advice. I don't remember seeing this setup on canards but wondered about the collective knowledge here and your experiences. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
