The Jabiru 3300 engine is running so smooth. I really wanted to firewall the throttle but guess I just have to be patient!!

Cylinder head temps are monitored on the Grand Rapids EIS. After about 15 mins they settled around the 140 to 145 degrees C. Back cylinder, No6, is running a bit cooler for some reason at around 130 - not sure why as yet. Not using the ram air ducts - have made an air box bit like on a Lycoming. Oil pressure at 40 psi, Oil temp stable at 75C. Havent taken it over 1600rpm as yet.

Nice taxi video Gary. Gota love the sound of the Jab engines, there just so smooth.
How are your temps running around the ground and which ones do you monitor?
