is that a Rolls Royce built Continental Clone with the larger cylinders and

125 hp for only 7 lbs extra weight. If so where did you manage to find those
cylinders, pistons, etc?
You might be thinking of the Continental IO-240 but I wasn't aware they
were ever used in the Aerobat. I'd love to have an (injected/opposed)
240 in my KR but I'd have to sell the airplane to afford one. That
engine is an 0-200 case with, I think, 0-360 cylinders and fuel
injection and rated at 125 hp. That would make a KR really scoot. That
engine was used in the Cessna plastic two place trainer that was
discontinued. One was modified for water cooling and used in Rutan's
round the world flight. The engine occasionally comes up for sale on
Barnstormers but out of my price range.
