We have a 300hp engine in the pipeline. There will be a measure of commonality with the 200hp engine and given the traction we are getting with RV10 builders and more so, Raptor builders (if it makes it to market), the 300hp engine may be the follow on product to the 200hp engine.
With a SFC of approaching 0.9 lbs/hp/hr, the PBS Velka TP100 will only be for the turbine diehards (Admittedly, I am one of those but soon I will have my own engine with half that SFC
But, first order priority, get the 200hp established in the market, demonstrating reliability and safety, with the company building a base of happy customers.
