3300 egt in a 601

howdy just got the mgl ems installed in my 601 powered by 3300. Never had a cht or egt monitoring. Surprised to see a decent spread on the cht between 280, and 320 f. Egt are are pushing 1400 on cruise....just had the carb overhauled with all new parts from bing and got the updated needle from jab. Manual says egt should be between 1200 and 1380.... am I too hot?...mechanic said 1400 is perfect . He said 1600 is too hot. Opinions please.See More

Right rudder input during takeoff 601 xlb

Hey guys I had a 701 for four years, it was very easy to fly. I sold that and bought a 601 XLb with the jabiru 3300. It seems that I need to use considerable more right rudder  input on the take off while I’m still on the ground to keep the plane on the centerline. Can anybody share their experience with this on the 601.See More

Best EIS for my jabiru 3300.

Hey guys I have a zodiac xlb with a jabiru 3300, right now I have one CHT probe on number 3 and no EGT. I want to have CHT and EGT on all cylinders. I was going to go with the GRT m6000 kit. The kit is approximately $1150 and I think it's worth it. Does anybody have a better solution or bang-for-the-buck. it will also monitor my oil temp and oil pressure with the sensors that I already have on my engineSee More

Hi Jeff.  Thanks for reaching out to me.  I have been disassembling fuselage to incorporate the B mod.  Uncovered a couple of mistakes to repair to be in accordance with the drawings.  Having fun.  I would like to see your plane sometime to see how some things go together, if you wouldn't mind.
