I'm sure as good as these have been running you will start to see a few more of them out there. I'm laughing I had one of my customers who purchased a 440, call me to let me know a manufacture was asking them about whats in his 440 motor. I told him to just tell them they can read this thread and be able to copy it.

Bill as for the AV gas you will loose a decent amount of horsepower but we can do it. I would add a bunch of cylinder pressure to offset the lower level of power in the fuel. The problem with AV gas is it has such a low BTU value. It makes less HP than about any other gas by producing less BTU per volume.

very true I use it in my AC motor mostly because it does more sitting then running but I can run 93, maybe one day I will switch to a truck motor I know they can put some thrust out
