Engine for the STOL CH 801

I bought a Lycoming HIO-360 E1AD. It is turbocharged and will deliver 205 HP to 12,000 feet. It came from a helicopter and I am making the necessary mods for the airplane. I have also converted the single stick to dual controls. Wings are on-Tail will be on in a day or 2. Am looking for some suggestions regarding a constant speed prop.

I am making a cowling so I have the stock Zenair cowling for sale--cheap--also the all-in-one exhaust ,heat muff system

Zenair parts

I have some parts for sale I am nor going to use. I am discounting everything 25% off the new price . A Zenair 801 cowl. A Lycoming O 360complete exhaust kit with muffler heat shroud. A carburetor filter heat box for a Lycoming O 360 and a Zenair 801 flap motor. All this stuff is listed on the airplane parts for sale tab on my website karlhippdesigns.com

The reason I am selling this stuff is that I am installing a different engine choice and I have installed manual flaps

I just bought a partly started 801 kit. I am interested to know if anyone has built an 801 with folding wings and if anyone has built an 801 as a taildragger?
