sorry, I got twisted, so assuming an RV12 is equipped for IFR
is the following table correct?

use IFR/VMC | IFR/IMC
type
S-LSA not allowed | not allowed
E-LSA allowed | allowed
EAB allowed | allowed

Thanks,
Brian.

Amateur built Equals EAB.

Why is IFR not allowed for E-LSA?
Assume pilot has a current medical and is IFR rated and current and the plane is IFR equipped.

I'm just wondering where I could fit a GTN625 now on my 12 and how much work to wire into my G3Xs....

Considering all the above, that the -12 meets all the FAA requirements for equipment (Instrument Flight) and is an E-AB, what about the engine? Does it need to have a certified version of the 912 to be legal?

Nope, just a certified panel mounted NAV source (GTN 6xx, etc).
