Picked up my plane at the factory having annual done last week. I can say that there will be a DA40 Lycoming announcement at OSH this year that I understand will change this discussion a bit. Stay tuned!
Can you all elaborate on the news we should be expecting?

Re: worth upgrading to 321.23 ?

Re: NG40 VS IO-360 real user pros and cons appreciated
