First start of my Eggenfellner Subaru E-6 engine. This is a converted automobile engine for aircraft use and is capable of producing 200 hp. Instead of burning just expensive aviation fuel, I will be able to use the cheaper 92 Octane auto fuel, or as necessary, aviation gas. Repairs and maintenance of this engine will also be cheaper then a typical aircraft engine. Being water cooled, it will have far less vibration and will be quieter then the typical air cooled aircraft engine. It will eventually be attached to my RV-8A that I am currently building.

Geared Drives 200Z PSRU For Subaru
At the time this was the worlds only Subaru on an RV9A using a hydraulic
constant speed prop. This prototype unit has all of the same features of
the original Geared Drives PSRU including its own oil reservoir, oil pump
and filtration system, drive port for hydraulic prop governor, and flywheel
and centrifugal clutch assembly. This airplane with the P2 prototype Geared
Drives PSRU can be seen at Sun n Fun Air Show, Lakeland, FL, April 21-26,
2009. Look for the Geared Drives booth N52 for directions the aircraft
Attempt #1 Blowing Up Subaru LX 1.6L Motor ................ FAILED
Attempt #1 at Blowing up a Subaru LX 1.6L Motor. The motor has nothing but
oil in it, it has roughly 280000klms on it.
Attempt #1 failed because the computer but the engine into Fail Safe
because there was no water in the radiator...... Well derrrr it has no
Stay Tuned for Attempt #2, the engine will DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Aero-TV: Viking Aircraft Engines - Powerful Yet Efficient Alternatives
An Alternative Sport Powerplant Shows Great Promise... And Power
At the 2011 Sebring Sport Aviation Expo, few displays got more attention
than Viking Aircraft Engines. In an industry heavily dominated by one
powerplant manufacturer (and one whose prices keep heading for the
stratosphere), then news of what appears to be a solid alternative engine
offering sure gets everyone's interest.
The latest offering form Viking Aircraft Engines Jan Eggenfellner is the
Honda-based HF-100 sport aviation powerplant. The product of an experienced
engine design team in Florida, the HF-110 engine shares moving parts with
the Honda fit automobile, the Honda outboard marine engine and the Honda
race engine. The engine has an estimated TBO of 2000 hrs, and powerplant
installation kits are either available or being prepared for Jabiru
Aircraft, CH-601 XL, CH-601 HD, CH-650, CH-750, CH-701, RV-12, Storch, IBIS
MAGIC 700, SeaRey, Sonex, Savannah XL, and the Morgan Aeroworks Cougar.
The fully assembled engine comes with a 40A Alternator, Dual Engine
controllers, Exhaust / Muffler, Air
intake, K&N Filter, Starter, Radiator, Oil cooler, fuel pumps and an Engine
mounting kit for your airplane. The price is $13,000. Designer jan
Eggenfellner first made a name for himself with a number of Subaru
conversion projects... and is a professional pilot and aircraft mechanic.
He has six years of college behind him, with degrees in Aviation
Management, Flight Operations and Aviation Technology. He has been building
aircraft engines since 1992 and does all the test flying himself.

Aircraft Emergency And Landing in a Glasair - the impossible turn ???
My Glasair engine is a Subaru SVX EG-33. Six bearings in the planetary
speed reduction unit failed during departure. I declared an in-flight
emergency and immediately returned for landing. Total flight time was 63
I failed to plug the camera mike in so you don't hear the engine monitor
blaring out alarms or chatter between other pilots and myself.
Departure was made with 10 degrees of flaps and remained there until
landing with 25 degrees. The buzzer during much of the flight is the "gear
up" with "flaps extended" warning horn ... the stall horn never sounded.
Speed did drop but the flight never reached critically low speed. Power
was intentionally reduced to keep gearbox temps down. I fly patrol flights
at 500 ft or less, often 6 to 7 hrs a day. So I do have low level
maneuvering experience. Some may call this the impossible turn but power
was available during the entire flight.

My dad is building himself a nice 72 Challenger. This is the first start
after putting the motor back in post build. I am still pretty bad at

Fiat 500 with Subaru engine
This is a Fiat 500 modified by ZCars Ltd to the specification of a customer
from Greece. The design brief was to fix his 500 in an interesting way so
that it would have more useable power to enable him to drive his family
around town in comfort. Whilst he was tempted to have the Suzuki Hayabusa
conversion ZCars also produce he decided that he wanted to keep the rear
seats. As that is where the 200bhp motorcycle would be installed that
option was ruled out!
The engine is an EA81 Subaru engine (1800cc flat 4) which is quite an old
engine although still widely used as an aviation engine we are told. This
engine was used due to its simplicity, power and torque characteristics and
not least its size and shape. This was mated to the original gearbox with
clutch and drive shafts up rated. Also up-rated were the brakes with discs
all around and the suspension at the front. The transverse leaf spring was
removed and adjustable alloy dampers were used with coil springs. A new
front subframe was fitted to allow the use of wishbone suspension arms.
Obviously as it is a water cooled engine, radiators were required. This was
inserted into the front boot space (trunk) and water pipes run underneath
the car. A new stainless steel Exhaust
finished the conversion and new wheels and tyres were fitted as an optional
