    Kevin, please keep us up to date on the progress of your effort on the forum. Two things would make a big difference in the Carbon Cub: cooler operating temperatures (for our low and slow flight profiles) and better fuel efficiency (LSA weight limits and fuel capacity).

    A fuel injected Carbon Cub should get us to the point of running cool and efficient (lean of peak).

    Kevin,

    I have just started building a Carbon Cub EX kit, so I will be looking to buy an engine in 18 months.

    I would be willing to pay a significant premium for a fuel-injected version of the current Cub Crafter stroker 340 engine.

    I hope you will work with ACE to see if their cylinder and fuel injection solution could be offered on your base engine to Cub Crafter builders.
