    One of our customers built this plane and just got it running recently:

    We'll be following this more in the future.

    Motor sounds great. Should be a nice preforming aircraft.

    Definitely one to watch!
    Anyone know how he intends to feed the radiator? I assume another inlet in the lower cowl.

    LS3 is a 300hp+ motor.. it can make a bag of bricks perform like a PITTS

    Looks like a FWF package.. $50k or so IIRC

    Get it down to $10k and you have my attention.

    Only issue I see is that as everyone should know, the 1st flight is Tuesday.

    BTW, let me know where you can buy a 300HP aircraft engine *crankshaft* for under $10k, and you'd have my attention. ;-)
