Re: Engine upgrades

If I understand you correctly, you want: 1. To buy pair of CD155 without sending back your old engines to Continental and upgrade your DA42. 2. Then to buy DA42 with engines close to TBR. 3.

Re: 1,800 Hr Inspection Costs

Re: Unusually high cruise speeds

When I had 2.0 engines my average numbers were:
- FL140 85% - 131 KIAS, 165 KTAS, 6.1 GPH (it's bit less than what @salim picture shows but his PFD also shows less pitch up than in horizontal flight)
- FL170 75% - 122 KIAS, 162 KTAS, 5.4 GPH (it's similar to what @klang picture shows)
