Thank you Smokey Ray. I hope the Turbo wasn't the cause of the fine RVTurbo gentleman's troubles. Seems like the turbo was working well in a 6.

I doubt it; FAA records show the airplane exchange hands afterwards.

The TIO360 lyc weighs 100 lbs more than a O360 and probably another 20 lbs more for CS prop. Seems too nose heavy. Makes me curious about the turbo retrofit the other gentleman did....
