Murray Kester in Australia sent me a couple of in-flight photos of his Jabiru 5100 (flat 8) powered Spitfire replica today. He's been flying it for a couple of years now with our SDS EFI on it. He says they are working at fitting a Toyota 5 liter V12 to it now. Hopefully ready in about 2 years. Cool!

What a beauty! I didn't think red would look so good on a Spit, but it does!
The V12 looks promising. I couldn't find a weight for it, but all-alloy, and lots of redundancy built in (can run on a single bank), should be good! I look forward to hearing more in the coming years.
