Looks like about the spread of a fancy interior & showplane paint job, or if you believe diesels are more efficient, about the spread in fuel weight for the same range....

IO-360-A 8.70:1 200 2,700 2,000 19.35 34.25 29.81-31.33 wt: 324-335

Not that there's any hope I could afford one, even if they do go into production.

I want one really badly.... but I'm skeptical of them coming anywhere near a Lycoming price point.

It's not clear how they are supporting the turbo in the video. I hope it's not just hanging off the exhaust system like it appears here.

40% lower fuel flow? Is that at full power or cruise? That would be a BSFC of around .25 comparing to a Lyc running LOP in cruise. 2 stroke diesels are lucky to be much below .38.

I traded a few emails with a Deltahawk media representative before OSH. At that time there were no plans to sell to the EAB market, which is why it's not in the next Kitplanes Engine Buyers Guide.

In the linked video, the clown with the microphone is Zoom Campbell. At S&F in 2000, just after dawn, he removed the cockpit covers from my JN4C, dumped it and all my flight gear in the wet grass, and proceeded to photograph the airplane. Zoom was banned from the S&F grounds at the time, thus the daybreak escapades. I still owe him a punch in the nose, so if you hear I got arrested...

It's a sad world where BWB is gone and that clown is still with us
