Any ideas about weight, size, and power of this engine setup?

Fuel efficiency?

He gained 20% in static thrust with the EFI/EI over the carb and mag. No idea what kind of power it's making but it's certainly not a plane to fly in the mountains on a hot day. Jim said it's adequate now and was pretty marginal before.

I believe he's burning around 3-3.5 GPH in cruise. With $2 mogas, flying doesn't get much cheaper than that.

The fuel burn makes it look like about 60 approx horsepower.
