Has anyone came across any information or installed a Turbo Kit on the 912is fuel injected Rotax? I know there are kits for the carbonated version. I am looking to get more power out of mine for Takeoff and Climb. Not really concerned about cruse as my 750 isn’t breaking any speed records any time soon.

Look these guys up in Elko NV.  Everything from upgrading your 80hp to adding - I'm not kidding - Porsche cylinders and pistons to your rig.

Give them a call after you study what they have and ask for Hal  !!

Thank you for the heads up. After reviewing there website I have left them a message. All there literature I can find like most places only talk about the carb engines 912ULS not the fuel injected 912is that I have. Thank you for the lead hopefully they will get back to me with some info.

If you can get through on the phone and talk to Hal that would be the way to go.  Probably very busy now what with Oshkosh and all.

I had a chat with him when he visited our local Pancake Breakfast fly in, really nice guy.  My interest was in the larger "balance tube"  - Fly Gas Intake Modification  information that I had sent to him and he has developed as a kit for sale.

I took his lead and modified my 912ULS - only one flight in rough, bouncy conditions but seems much smoother.

Check the internet Google Rotax intake balance tube

I will check into that. Jay got back to me first thing this morning and I sent him over the info he needed to start working me up some Info. I’m excited to see what he comes up with.
