Just thinking out loud.
When Trevor first listed it. I measured up the drop, and cowl. Only requires a motor box cut. Which I find rather easy to do.
Then 20 minutes later Jack offered me the Big Sexy Sukhoi, with my dream engine ZDZ 180. Couldn't let that pass. Trevor understood. Then a month later, up comes the MVVS-190.

I had the cowl off the Edge this afternoon. Thought I would take a photo.

So,

Hhmmmm.

Personally I seen how this thing whips around a 43% I can only imagine on a 40% on a lighter airframe. I think the Super Suk is the more ideal airframe

Most likely, that will be it's home. But I was hoping to run it in the "Driveway" with the J-Tec pipes that are required for Super Suk. Due to landing gear and wing tube locations.
I have flown Super Suk now 10 times. I could simply replace the Knuckle headers, and keep flying/enjoying it that way. Now that is a beautiful flying airframe.
Could do a fresh airframe this, or next winter. So many options.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Would a set of custom mufflers work with your Quad and super suk? I know a guy who might be able to help you out.
