    Without a weight given, I doubt there will be much interest here.

    A figure that I found said 89kg, didn't specify what is included in that weight.

    35 kW out of 89 kg is 47 hp and 196 lb. At 4 lb/hp, that is very heavy for the power. You can probably shave pounds with tube manifolds and a straight flywheel (sounds like they use a dual mass flywheel} but it is not like you will halve its weight. Then you most likely will still need to come up with a different turbo, different intercooler, different radiator, oil cooler and ducting all appropriate for the flight mission. It is not sounding like a decent starting point for an airplane engine to me.

    Dang, last friday i went flying behind a not decent 350 lbs 80cv engine! Funny how I totally did not notice.
    53cv for 100kg is the firewall-forward weight of the psa tu3d used in the next version of this airplane. It's 100% built with your mantra, WEIGHT IS THE ENEMY (so you can fly with a very economic boat anchor. Aircraft is 280kg empty, do the math without the engine ;) The fuel tank is about 10 gallons! Still fly 4-5 hours at 120 kts...)
    Sorry for the snark... but yes diesel engines are heavy but you can fly with one just fine in the right, light and clean, airframe.
