Default New builder (possibly)

Hey fellers, I am thinking about moving up two notches to a 14. Yes, I am fixin to squeeze the trigger on a 14 (RV not mini, but I like those too). I have been pondering this for several years and have decided to make the decision at Kosh next month. I am wondering which prop, which engine, who has the deals, y'all know what I mean? I am fairly firm on Advance 5600's and Avidyne. Any and all advice is appreciated.

Glad to hear another builder is going the -14 route!

Hold off on avionics as long as you can. No other technology changes so fast.

Vans has engine/prop deals on the IO-390 and Hartzell prop for show season. There are some flying with the Superior XP400 motor too. Seems like there are most flying or building with the Hartzell aluminum prop and a few with the Hartzell composite prop or MT or Whirlwind composite props. I am over in northern VA if you want to come by and check my build out.
