Super Eagle Engine Conversion
The Super Eagle Engine conversion is designed for Cessna 180 and 182 models currently equipped with Continental 470k through U engines. It is basically a carbureted Continental O-520. We call it the Dash Fifty for short. The Super Eagle conversion utilizes your existing engine mount, baffling, exhaust and cowling. No airframe modifications are required. Total additional weight of the engine is approximately +4 pounds.
To create the Dash Fifty (-50), we modify eligible stock Continental O-470 and 520 models. Although these engines require different modifications, the end result is the same….…the Super Eagle O-470-50. It will dramatically increase the performance of your aircraft by improving thrust, and giving you the capability of higher cruise speeds with little if any increase in fuel consumption. Being a carbureted engine, there is virtually no change in operation or maintenance procedure.
With the Super Eagle Engine, you can reach your destination sooner which means fewer hours on both your engine and airframe. Flight tests have produced speeds up to 189 MPH using aircraft that do not have any airframe speed modifications installed.
The Super Eagle Engine was tested on a dynamometer to determine two horsepower (HP) ratings:
Free HP: Total horsepower (HP) without any accessories installed.
Installed HP Total horsepower (HP) after accessories are installed.
Free HP O-470:
Free HP Super Eagle: 265 (275 if cylinders are equipped with venturi seats)
