Fun fact, I had to specifically request brand new pricing, he said they don’t even quote it because it is so astronomical and most people don’t even bother buying it.
Yeah, no. I'm not buying that one, considering that you can order the brand-new same engine from Vans today for $42,850, and an IO-540 for $67,650. Care to share who your lycoming dealer was?
The year-long wait on a new engine I will believe, yes, but your price is about 2X.
