Truyeart LS1 Engine for his RV-10 Starts for the first time!
Another Geared Drives LS1 engine package for RV-10 roars to life for the
very first time! The engine starts easily and runs at low RPM since it is
not good for it to run without the load of a propeller on it. We run it
long enough to test the systems, check for leaks, test the PSRU etc. At the
very end of the video you can see the breather on the PSRU kick over the
little bit of overage of oil as it seeks its natural level in the gearbox.
This is normal for a first run up.
Larry Ketterlings P-51 Engine
Geared Drives FWF engine package for P-51 at idle and run up very
conservatively since we were testing ignition only and there was no prop
installed. Note how smoothly the engine transitions from low RPM to higher
RPM. Nice rumbling sound through the short custom Exhaust, volume increased via the collector with
baffling within to provide back pressure and guard against shock cooling
Aero-TV: Trace Engines - Re-Engineered Turbocharged Power
C.E.O. David Czarnecki Profiles the 600 horsepower Trace Engine
Until recently, general aviation manufacturers had only one option, the turboprop, for powering market aircraft.
Trace Engines LP spent years developing and designing an alternative
solution to meet the aviation industries need for a modern, cost effective
reciprocating engine. Fully certified and ready for production, the Trace
V-8 engine represents an evolution in engine selection.
The turbocharged, liquid-cooled engine
improves operational performance by increasing speed, range, and gross
weight without increasing operational cost; TRACE Engines estimates that
with the combined lower cost to purchase, repair, and overhaul, operators
can save 35% to 50%. As Czarnecki explains, while a turbine engine
displays constant power degradation as altitude increases, the turbocharged TRACE V-8 maintains cruise power all
the way up with an estimated 600hp maximum takeoff and 500hp maximum
continuous; an equivalent turbo prop
engine would need to be rated as much as 1,000 horsepower at sea level to
match the TRACE engines output at altitude. The result is an average 27
gallons per hour fuel rate, less than 30% than the fuel rate of an
equivalent powered turbine engine.
Currently, typical installations can be found in singles with gross weights
up to 6,000 lbs and twins up to 12,500 lbs. The starting price remains at
200,000 for an engine package, with total installation costs varying due to
time and labor. TRACE Engines LP is located in Midland, Texas where its
production facilities are able to produce around 100 engines a year for
over 40,000 potential aircraft retrofit opportunities.

This is my homebuilt Ultralight plane that I've been working on for two
years, It's got 8.2hp, weighs around 70kg and it's got a 5.5M wing span and
this is its progress so far...
Supermarine Aircraft Factory Tour 2011
Bill Gunn, safety director for the Texas Department of Transportation -
Aviation Division, receives an exclusive tour of the new Supermarine
Aircraft Company factory located in Cisco, Texas. At the request of our
government, CEO Michael O'Sullivan is opening this branch factory in Texas
which will bring much needed economic stimulus to the Lone Star State.

Nissan TB48 turbo Torque Monster Dyno tuning a Nissan
Patrol TB48 4.8L six. The engine is now rebuilt with forged pistons and
rods and features a custom JPC turbo at
10psi Boost and MoTeC EFI. Not built
for outright power, but instead good throttle response and reliability the
engine will be going into an off-road dirt truck. Initially making close to
600Ib.ft at just 3000rpm, torque was backed off for the truck's first
shake down runs. A final figure of 559hp was achieved, not bad for a low Boost application.
