Default Starter Fit

This has been discussed many times before but looking for others with same setup as me. My RV8 is done final inspection. On the runup the Skytech LS starter would barely turn the prop over. Many discussions here say changing to NL model was the solution.

I have horizontal induction IO-360-A1B6
Silverhawk Fuel Injection
Sam James cowling and forward facing air intake

Anyone try the NL model with this setup?
Anyone try the high torque 149-12HT?
Anyone try the e drive model?

Unfortunately B&C is out of the question with this setup.

Thanks

Default Battery

Have you thought about an EarthX battery? It made all of my starter problems go away.

Default Yup

I have earth x battery 900. Still with LS starter and high compression engine itís terrible as others have found out before.

Just think this NL model might interfere with air intake and/or fuel injection.
