Just a basic question. How many people posting here are flying behind (or in front of) a Subaru?
I am building a Murphy Rebel and have a "spare" Rebel that I purchased that has a Formula Power Subaru engine. I was looking at purchasing this engine at the time I found this plane. The engine at the time was priced at just under $15,000 and I was able to buy this damaged plane for a little less that that so I figured I was getting a better deal in the long run. This plane was damaged after 303 TT and my original plan was buying this damaged plane and putting the engine in the Rebel I was constructing but after getting this damaged plane home I realized it would be better to rebuild this plane instead of piece it out. Maybe I will just sell it as I have too many projects already. In the mean time I am wonder what kind of reliability, fuel burn, and satisfaction people have had with their Subaru engines.
