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.

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

builders, with more power claimed than the Rotax.

RV 7A Construction
This is a series of rough shop photos documenting the build progress of my
Van's Aircraft RV-7A Slider.
Other RV builders make be interested in the custom fuselage rotisserie that

wonder how you ever got by without one!
