Question

Sundowner 36 with Modified Evolution TPS?


A friend has offered to sell me a new, unassembled Sundowner 36 for $85. The only catch is that he also wants me to buy an unused Evolution TPS (.45) along with it for an additional $40.

I can shed 1.5oz by pressing off the flywheel. I can probably fabricate a custom pipe and bring the engine's total weight below 16 ounces. Though I realize there are better options out there, I'm interested in some honest input of whether I would be wasting my time and money.

Has anyone out there tried this or a similar combination?
I plan to use this plane for general sport flying.

Thanks in advance,
Lee H.

Alright, thanks for all the help. ...I just turned down the offer since I wasn't sure.
