Vesta Introduces Honda Conversion
Vesta, Inc. now offers an Experimental engine conversion made from the J35 V-6 3.5/3.7-liter Honda automobile engine. The engine comes with a HyVo chain PSRU that can be set with ratios from 1.5:1 to 2.5:1. A dual computer, starter and alternator are also included. The dry weight of the engine with PSRU is 350 pounds, the company says.
Horsepower is rated at 220 to 300, depending on displacement and use of an optional supercharger. The supercharged version will maintain 260 hp to 12,000 feet, and adds an extra 20 pounds, Vesta says. Because of liquid cooling, fuel burn is 2 to 3 gph less than a comparable air-cooled aviation engine. The engine is tuned for two-, three- or four-blade propellers, also made by Vesta.
Base price for the engine is $13,900, plus $5400 for the three-blade prop.
