I think the Radial -8 is pretty neat - I got to see it long before it flew, and then several times after - butthe firwwall on an -8 is much bigger than on a -3, and even at that, he had to make the firewall bigger. I think such an installation would be a wee bit of a monstrosity Doug - and have less horsepower than the IO-320 we’re flying.....
