    There is always fun to be had down here. Don't worry, it's a "dry heat".
    You missed a lot of fun in Idaho.

    N536CS - S/N 053, 430 TT: Bought 4 new Continental cylinders and had Lycon do the HP upgrade (August 2016). Prop is a Catto 76- 40, which on the stock engine left some RPM to be desired, but works great with the upgrade. Installed the ECI CGR-30P engine monitor which made the break-in period less stressful with the 4 cylinder CHT / EGT / OAT, Fuel Flow, Volts and trending displays.
    Haven't been able to hold the brakes to get a static RPM, about 2,450 and the 26" tires roll. Really impressed with the short takeoff, improved climb, and rapid revving quality to pull me out of stalls or need some quick and steep climb. Fuel consumption is also less at the same cruise speeds. Made a formation take-off with two Carbon Cubs (Ben Hodges in one here at SMX) and could break ground in about the same distance, but cannot match the climb rate of the 180 HP cheaters. Could cruise with them using 2,500 RPM at 105 IAS. Also got some nice comments about going in and out of the same places, just as safely and for $150K less.

    All around, ya gotta love the Sport Cub.

    Since your cub is E-LSA, did you look at any other engine monitors? The price of the CGR is kinda steep, is there anything resembling that for experimental?

    thx

    Scott,
    We have a Sport Cub with very similar time. I was curious why you replaced your cylinders after 400 hours? Did you have trouble with the original cylinders?
