@Jacques - pm me your detail I will send on installation pics.

@Checkride - Thanks for the compliments, the fatty fits me like a glove (for obvious reasons) and I really enjoy her. The width is a deal maker , seating for us bigger oakes are the best, really comfy on longer trips. So no Rael, not for sale...... :)
The injection is really neat on your Jab, and it is for sure bucket listed in not too far away future. Think we'll discuss it very soon at the Jabbi cave.. I'm very excited about the fact that each injector can be individually mapped, really beneficial for engine and optimal setup.
Will see soon.

Totally agree, Jabbi development cave. Good luck, sure it will bring great improvements to an already good system, will pop in and have a chat, going away on Thursday for a couple days, will try to come around before.

Im around,,,working on the sling. Might start on my engine soon as well got it secured in a work stand today. Might have a clearance issue with the injectors but have a work around in case. Those hose for the oil cooler need to come off, annoys me every time I look at the engine. Dont know what the previous owner was thinking, theres actually a bulletin out for using jubilee clamps on these hose . this motor has 4 of these clips. Anyway all will be changed.

No problem, we are convinced =D> =D> =D> Good show!
It's just a matter of the price difference, for the R 50 000 difference in price, I can buy 2170 liters of fuel, which equates to about 155 hours of flying. I suppose if you really want improved ground run it's well worth it. For me, I'd rather spend the money on avgas. A bit longer ground run gives me free 155 hours in the air.
I do like the installation and the R & D you guys do =D> =D>
