BTW: if anyone has specific questions regarding the use of 3D prints as molds for fiberglassing, feel free to reply here or as a PM. I'm sure I didn't include all the details in the blog post.

The engine break-in is done (or nearly so). The last test was a simulated cross country flight of greater than 300 nm to test the air box within a heat soaked engine compartment. Everything checked out.

Time to get back to my typical mission of long XC legs.

It isn’t the fastest RV-8 but it is now “in the pack” with typical “Vans numbers” and I’m very happy with the new economy cruise settings.

It’s like getting that RV Grin all over again.

Thanks to the vast quality of data stored in these forums and special thanks to DanH for reviewing design ideas and responding to emails.

Thanks Tom for both the words of encouragement and the top shelf products. The hoses are working perfectly!
