Engine has been ordered including the Barret Induction (fits Wolf Cowl). Have a new Raven induction set up for a Parallel Valve 540. Easy to install, no need to remove existing sump.

Retail $1495 sell $1100 plus shipping.

This is a great deal, guys. Rob does super work, I have this induction system and also his headers, and the fitup was perfect. Cheap at $1495, super cheap at $1100...

Thanks Tommy J. Certainly agree with you on the quality of Rob's work. If anyone is ever in Australia and wants to checkout the 2XS let me know.

Looks like the exhaust isnt going to fit either. The engine is on order from Lycon and I have shifted away from the stock 2XS cowl and gone with the Wolf CF. Another fine example of quality of experimental aviation products.

The cowl is going to be tight, not sure if the exhaust is going to fit either. Will consider selling both as a package. The exhaust has polished collectors.

I will get Raven to build a new exhaust if needs be.

I also have to say Ken and Chris at Lycon have been great to deal with, the engine I am going to end up with is going to be simply awesome. Still on the fence with prop choices either MT or Whirlwind 400C.

I should be ready for that Biplane Fly-Off sometime soon!
