I think if you get the matco brakes, you'll be disappointed without the wheels. Their setup (at least the version I have) is very different than Cleveland brakes, and the parts are not interchangeable.

What are the perceived advantages of the Vetterman exhaust vs the standard version? FYI, I just installed the standard system a couple of weeks ago and had no complaints.

Pacific Oil Cooler has a "near" drop in cooler that gives a fair amount more cooling capacity than the stock setup. I was disappointed that it wasn't an exact drop-in, which was what they had indicated. FYI, the mount holes on the -10 are closer together vertically by 1/16" than the slots on the mount ears for the oil cooler. That means the normal mounting hardware won't quite fit, even after you relieve the holes in the cooler mounting flanges. I used hex head screws and had to grind a flat on edge of the washers to make it work.

Having used hinges along the horizontal seams along the cowling sides on my RV-6 and screws across the top and bottom, I used hinges in the same places on the -10 but substituted skybolts for the screws. If I got a do-over, I'd use screws again.

I'm not a fan of investing the time, cost, and weight for braided lines other than firewall forward, but that's a personal decision. Making the aluminum lines is pretty easy.

What does an aftermarket glare shield do for you that a can of semi-gloss rattle can paint won't? Just curious.

I have the vetterman on my seven and it works well. I''l have to check the cost vs vans.
I like pre-made lines because they plug and play. No issues.
I am getting a full interior so paint on top of metal inside is not a choice I would make. It was fine for my seven but not the 10. I am going to do my best to make it quiet, VERY comfortable, and IFR super capable.

My RV-10 came from Van's with a Vetterman exhaust system in the kit. Received it a couple of years ago as part of the FWF kit.

I think you want the Plane Around 180 door latch system. The outside door handle from AeroSport.

Have you considered Air Conditioning? If so, suggest you take a look at Airflow Systems unit.

As far as I am aware, the VANS exhaust is from Vetterman.

I'd definitely consider some sort of upgrade path for the brakes.

Pmag? Still not in manufacture but may be by the time you get that far - mind you, I was told that 5 years ago......

I would definitely get a supply of extra hardware such as the most used bolts (-4,-5,-6,-7,-10), washers, nuts, nutplates, #6 and #8 screws, rivets etc. Not expensive and I guarantee you will need them and find that you don't have them just when you need them. VANS supply "enough" but no spares to cater for loss or damage.

For tires I went with the dresser retreads along with the match brakes.
Sound proofing don’t remember the type but I used 1/2 inch thickness.
For sun visors I mounted a set of Rosens made for Cessna 310/340’s.

The exhaust you get from Vans is from vetterman. I would also maybe suggest working the add/deletes on a per kit basis. There are a lot of options out there.

I'd recommend step bushings from http://www.tcwtech.com.

Also recommend the Vans ADAHRS tray and the side shelf for ELT/Whelen mount. Much easier to install WHILE building the tailcone than after the fact.

Default Avoiding magnetos, PMAG or otherwise

For Matco wheels, don't forget to get their axles and spacers too and then delete wheels, brakes and axles from the kit. It's a very nice setup and I like 'em.

Why not just go with an EFII setup? It's not much more than a mechanical fuel injection system and certainly less hassle than magnetos...and, bonus tip, you can buy one right now {think SDS}.

Although it's always great to continue to discuss these topics, you might also look at the many previous threads on the topic too.

I just spoke to him. Suppose to be ready in about a month. So sometime in April/May. He said a lot of new engineering went into these and they will be available for certified as well, hence the delay. So get ready....
