Hey how can they build an ECU for a turbine and not cost so much? Wait is that what your buying when you get a turbine? The ECU and get the turbine for free?

I would have to agree. I do know the system had to be durable enough to sell to governments flying expensive planes and so should have a very reliable service record.
If it was affordable I was going to order a 175 efi but it is out of this boys price range. I only make $10 an hour LOL

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Well that was fun. I just had my first meeting with a grumpy land owner. I knock on the door, he answers, I say my name is Dan with Ember Resources. His response, your an a##hole.

He is lucky I like my job so much cause his attitude only got worse. I just nodded and smiled for the hour and a half. I really wanted to straighten him out in my own way. I am surprised the little 5'5" guy would talk to someone 6'3" 230 pounds like that lol
