    With the same horse power but lighter weight, I'm sure it would beat the soob.  But, what is their reliability like?  What is the cost of repairs like? Can you take one to your favorite auto mechanic to have it rebuilt?  How much is the FWF kit?

    Sabaru vs Rotax 912 UL
    I keep hearing how much heavier the Subaru is than the Rotax, but I haven't seen any actual numbers.  Does anyone know the actual weight difference in the two engines?

    Jim, what would you pay for a project in that shape?  I'm thinking it'll go for about $1500, but that's just my guess.

    Mark, my money would be on what you're thinking happened.  Whatever the story is, it's a shame to see it in that shape.  But hey, it's like when I see an old VW Bug, I see possibilities.

    Let me ask you this, if you're not flying, what is there to do in Soldotna, Alaska?  If there's not tons to do, then tons of projects is the thing to do, in my book.  Good luck on them all.

    BRS Parachutes
    Anyone have any idea how much added weight one of these systems are?  I'm not looking to install one, I'm thinking about buying a plane that has one, but considering removing it if I buy the plane.

    To be honest, I like the idea of a Subaru engine that can be rebuilt and or modified by your favorite auto mechanic.  I like the price of Subaru engines, and the fact that they are readily available.

    With everyone getting rid of their NSIs, where do you find a good used 912 UL so you don't have to spend the $20 something grand for a new one?

    I don't know how good a battery tender works on a bigger battery, but on my Harley, it got the battery to last 10 years.
