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.

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.

Glasair 1RG Fly By 260 MPH - Subaru EG33 Motor
Father-In-Law's first flight in a Glasair aircraft powered by a Subaru
Alcyone SVX EG33 six cylinder 202 cubic inch engine. He had never before
experienced any "G Loads" and handled them well. Watch us make a high speed
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
Viking Honda auto conversion engine on the Zenith STOL CH 750
Here's a nice look at the VIKING Honda-based motor on the Zenair CH750-STOL
airplane. It appears to be a popular alternative engine for kit plane
builders, with more power claimed than the Rotax.

Company display (Florida, January 2012).
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!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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.
Glasair Subaru First Test Start
http://www.GlasairProject.com: I had been building my Glasair I for about 8
1/2 years. I designed this Subaru engine installation. This is the first
test start of the engine. Visit GlasairProject.com
