    Kevin, don’t engines look so nice when they are new? Are you upgrading to 160 HP? I’m looking forward meeting up with you again.

    Hey Juergen,
    Yes I am. Iíve always had a 150 on there but my airplane is actually a PA-22-160 so it will once again have the proper engine on it. I also installed the Micro Aerodynamics VG kit.

    Let me know what you think about the VG kit. I’m thinking about installing it as well.

    Juergen,
    The VG's are noticable when your a little slow in the flare and instead of mushing through and plopping on it'll actually balloon.
