Default Fore and aft intake manifold.

Ross, What about designing an intake manifold/collective that runs fore and aft...similar to the Edge Performance setup? A single throttle body could be used with this type of intake and the individual intake runner lengths and angles could be adjusted to accommodate different airframes. You could also then ditch the stock cast manifolds. Edge may be a four letter word, but I’m just using their intake manifold design as and example and to give food for thought.

There is no room for this type of manifold on the RV-12 installation without moving a lot of components already attached to the engine- coolant bottle, ignitors, hoses, cylinder air ducts etc. We offer a longitudinal one too but not suitable on an RV-12.

These two photos give you some idea of all the stuff mounted in the middle of the engine.

Ross,

Thanks for the charge upgrade options kinks.
The Flygas double alternator was another. @1.5 kg
www.flygas.info

Last time i enquired about the SH charge upgrade option, it was no longer available. Perhaps it's available again now?
Cheers,

If not available, I wish they'd take down the page. I don't know. Someone told me about these a few years back and it seemed to work as advertised.

Ross,

A correction regarding the S/H F3030 - 500Watt charge system upgrade.

The system i made enquiries about January this year was the Silent Hektik V1410 525W rotor and stator

. The Silent Hektik V1410 option did not have the 2 ignition system charge coil windings to supply power to the ignition system, so it was not a direct replacement for the Ducatti 250Watt stator and rotor.
A battery powered ignition system was also required in conjunction with this option.

The current advert in the link you posted, is advertised as a 500 Watt direct replacement assembly for the ducatti 250 Watt system. (Joeri was good enough introduce me to google translate and pointed out Kürze wieder lieferbar = Available soon)
So, this is looking very much like an effective charge system upgrade with very the advantage of minimal weight and additional mechanical complications.

I contacted Silent Hektik for some more info. Underneath their answer.
Aero 2019 will be from 10-13th of April 2019.

Regards, Joeri

Guten Morgen
and thanks for the email.
We want to fabricate the first 100pcs alternators before
spring 2019 and show it at the AERO_2019.
warm regards

The verbiage on that site is painful to read. Almost written in Chinglish.

Default New SDS EFI Parts for Rotax 912s

We've just finished most of the CNC'd parts for our all new 912 EFI kits. Engine test fitting should begin in July. These include new 40mm throttle bodies made specifically for this project.



This will be a twin throttle body setup to best fit the maximum number of airframes out there. A single cable will activate the throttle arms to get rid of the factory Y cable. A rigid link with rod ends will keep the throttle plates permanently in synch.



All mating surfaces are O-ring sealed.



Injector adapters sandwich between the factory intake manifolds and heads. The floppy rubber carb isolators are ditched as are the carbs, drip trays, choke cables etc.

Injectors are mounted inline for maximum cowling clearance. We use some of the same fuel hardware bits as our Lycoming kits where appropriate to save on costs and part numbers stocked.

New stainless hardware will be supplied with the kit.

As usual with our kits, we try to minimize weight with careful design of the components.

Will also be interesting to see what the hourly fuel consumption is with this new Fi rig. Wondering what type of fuel pump and fuel pressures are needed with these fuel injectors?
