Hi Mal,

At this stage I'm still leaning towards a Jabiru engine, although I like the look of these new UL Power engines.

If you ever are visiting your aunt down here, give me a yell and we'll have a beer and you can have a chuckle at my Slowbuild.

Welcome to the family.

I wish you the all the best with your project.

If you ever get the chance to visit the Zenith factory please take the time to
stop by our builder assist facility too. We like to have visitors here and we
are right here in Mexico, Mo. just a couple of miles from them.

Take care and good luck,
