    I went down to Hillsboro, TX and shot this video for AutoPSRS. Engine Noise! Stuart Davis of Auto PSRU demonstrates a real time demonstration of his company's geared drive on an automotive engine, allowing the conversion of auto engines for aircraft use.

    Unfortunately, a short video of a running engine PSRU can only really convey 'ooh, shiney'. A 500 hour video of a continously run engine/PSRU followed by a stripdown would be a lot more informative, but a little tedious to watch.

    ^^^. Agreed, but at least its actual, functioning hardware instead of a slick CGI prophecy. It will succeed or fail based upon actual laws of physics. Got to admire that.

    I agree Toolbuilder.The way I see it if you built a HBA with the fire wall to match that type of engine and got as far as watching and hearing it run on airframe, better yet got to fly behind it. Hopes it's me that gets the 500 hrs in.;)

    is this related to the V8 conversion for the 172 that was shown a few years ago?

    No, these are not related. Main target market is RV10, Moose, Lancair etc. Have been a couple installed in RV10s but they are heavier than Lyconentals though more powerful.
