Just personal preference for me. Is DA the best...nope, but the rest strive to be their equal or better!! some make it but most don't in my eyes.

IMHO!
LOL!! No striving required... DA is about as mediocre as the rest. At least with the equivalent priced 3W's or ZDZ's you get serious refinement!!

Totally agree...European engines are much more refined and they keep it that way. Doubtful DA will ever match those 3 engines!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Can parts be gotten for the European engines? I was surprised to learn (here in this thread) that you can buy parts from Desert Aircraft!
