Default Raptor prototype engine on an RV-10

Does anyone have any experience that could give some good insight on whether the raptor engine setup would work on the RV-10. Obviously it would be in a pull configuration on the RV-10. weight of the engine is coming in around 550lb and looks to have around 340 hp. Seems to me you could save a lot on this setup versus a lycoming, also could cruse at higher altitude more efficiently.
Just about to start an RV-10 build and i obviously don't want an unsafe motor or to create allot of extra work for myself but lycomings are expensive and the engine they are putting together for the raptor prototype looks realy well put together and would be cheap to maintain. Also runs on jet fuel which is available everywhere.
