Good going, Scott! Sounds like great performance. I look forward to hearing more. Soon as you get all the bugs worked out, I'll be ready for one!

Thanks Scott - looks really cool - if you want to post 100 pictures I'm sure we'd all love to see them.

YES YES YES!!!

I've been eyeing a VW 3.0 V6 TDI for the powerplant if / when I get to build an RV-10.

I'm very interested in this project!

Default Performance Data

With the G3x fixed, its time to finish Phase 1.

Fuel Consumption testing flight #1: 5500ft at Max Cruise (90%- 207HP) approx. pwr

105kt cruise climb to 5500,
30min. at 76"MAP 2190rpm 151Kias/167Ktas
60"MAP descent at 155 Kias. 750fpm

Instruction to lineman- 1 inch from the top before flight and after.

Dipstick readings----- L tank ---- R tank (these are not gallons)
Before ------------------- 13.0 ---- 13.0
After --------------------- 9.5 ------ 10.5
After refuel -------------- 13.5 ---- 13.0

G3x recording length 58 minutes and 7.1 Gallons. Airborne 45 minutes.
Fuel truck--7.0 gallons


Qualifier:Red Cube calibration still being adjusted. Due to fuel injector pulses, red cube can't read ground fuel burn, so fuel counter reset just before takeoff. But I forgot to check it just after landing, so while it looks real accurate, its not. I just got lucky. But the fuel truck meter is accurate

Sorry, I just can't get used to seeing 60" MAP in a descent! :-)

Those numbers look very encouraging. And if I may say so, the photos of your installation make it look very neat and tidy. I wish you the very best of success in this endeavor.

Appreciate the update Scott. Looking forward to more FF and speed data as you get it. This has to be one of the most interesting RV10s flying.

I'd say.

Ballpark price on this engine so I'll know if it's even in the realm of possibility over here?
