Six pistons on a 12. Cool. Looks like you modified the turtle deck. Nice.

Nice to see an Aussie engine going into an RV.
Are you sticking with the standard carbie or going for an alternative? The Aero Vee throttle body works well on a friend of mines Sonex, same engine.
My opinion is that the stock cooling as it comes from Jabiru works well, but 4CHTs would be a good idea. No need for EGT with the stock carbie.

I'm sure you have done W&B calculations but from your photo the setup looks heavier than a 912 and seems further forward. Do you have to make other changes to keep COG correct?

Default Gen 4 Jab

Thanks all for your response
Ron
The Engine should be here early January

Ian / Bob
The Engine will have a Bing Carburetor and will remain stock until the warranty is up, then all things are possible.
I will use 6 CHTs & 6 EGTs

Tom
Ditto The New Gen 4 Engines looks like Jabiru have their best engine to date.

Mike
The Cowling is from Pete a few years ago and is still available.

Jim
Yes many
A few
